We are overwhelmed by presenting a new part of our jury, the berlin based duo Ania Bauer and Jacob Brinck, better known as studio llot llov! <3
llot llov’s design is both functional and emotional. Often playful, always visionary, they work conceptually to aesthetically improve our day-to-day world. Their guiding principles are: Content, efficiency, clarity and sustainability. Usefulness is a priority without foregoing complexity.
llot llov’s work is mostly application-oriented. Their products and interior designs are determined bythe choice of materials and their specific composition. Suppliers from Germany, the neighbouring states and the use of local structures are de rigueur for the team.
llot llov works in close contact with its producers and clients and promotes a close relationship to the demanding consumers as well as to the international users and artists. llov llot is deeply rooted in the creative culture of Berlin and profits from a lively urban environment.
Sophie Lovell is a freelance writer, editor, curator and consultant in the fields of architecture and design and the Editor-in-Chief of the Berlin-based international online magazine uncube. Originally from London, she graduated in Biology at Sussex University and Design at Chelsea College of Art before moving to Berlin in 1994. Here she rapidly became an active member of the city’s burgeoning multidisciplinary creative scene, where she developed an interest for mixing and crossing creative borders. This has remained a key feature in her approach to her international projects from designing exhibitions to writing books, making magazines and advising a broad range of clients. “Exploring interfaces and transcending disciplines is where new possibilities arise,” she states, “it is precisely within these interstitial spaces that contemporary innovation is generated”.
