Lecture at The Stage by Michael Hilgers:
Dare to be niche – a different approach to design


On the basis of examples, the presentation demonstrates that current trends like “space-saving furniture”, “home office” and “urban green” can be decisively co-designed through individual supposed niche products. From the perspective of his creative work, the designer Michael Hilgers feels that there is always also an interesting story behind every product.

In the process he questions traditional product categories for today’s residential and work world and reconsiders these in a pragmatic manner. The (multi-)functional, flexible and space-saving furniture developed in his Berlin studio have been distinguished with awards several times, incl. the Interior Innovation Award. His own label rephorm specialises in innovative solutions for urban life.
