Industrial designer Werner Neumann has recently debuted two furniture collections dubbed Organic and Birchwood. Although the names focus on the natural aesthetic of each piece, they belie their opulent nature as well. From luxuriously upholstered leather seating to polished brass cabinets, Werner Neumann's designs mesh two worlds into one.
Based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Werner Neumann prides himself on being able to express imaginative ideas into forms. Often working with atypical shapes and materials, he creates pieces of furniture that make statements rather than blending into their surroundings. In his Organic collection, he tweaks nature-inspired shapes by covering them in aberrant materials. In the Birchwood line, Werner Neumann pairs the rough and raw quality of the birch bark found in forests with quirky designs and quilted upholstery for even more character.
