Peter Maly is considered to be one of the protagonists of longevity; his designs are purist, geometrical, elementary and embody clarity and functionality. In his case of furniture, lamps, carpets and interior design concepts, purism and functionality unite – significant elements that are typical for Maly’s work. “My work is characterised by the search for an expressive form, which in spite of the greatest independence possible, shouldn’t push its way to the fore,” is how the designer describes his work. In the talk with Barbara Friedrich Peter Maly give in inside view into his work.

Maly’s career began with an apprenticeship as a carpenter and after studying Interior Design at Detmold led directly to “Schöner Wohnen” in Hamburg in 1960. Where he was a member of the editorial staff for ten years and head of the magazine’s interior design team. His monthly rubric “Skizzenbuch” (Sketchbook) assisted numerous readers in solving their living problems. In 1970, the designer founded his own design studio, which he relocated to Aumühle at the gates of the Hanseatic city in 2006. The studio, where today also significant designs are showcased, forms the focus of the designers’ work and life. New ideas, which aim to enrich living and life, have been developed there for decades.
