Maximilian Löw is a young designer from Weißenburg, Germany, studying Integrated Design at the University of the Arts in Bremen. His work focuses on objects for everyday life, with a playful handling of materials and design in different fields.
One project, titled Edged—Cutlery, combines the elegant soft curves of classic cutlery with sharp, rigorous edges. Cast in bronze, the set is designed to achieve a balance of ergonomics and aesthetics.
On his process, Maximilian states that “It is my impulse to question the essence of objects and to try to get to the bottom of them. Therefore it is really important to experiment and work practically.”
The designer’s work also includes Edged—Lamp, a one meter long pendant lamp made from a single sheet of stainless steel. The design process involved the creation of a paper model before the final result was achieved.
Another inventive and playful project is Cake Server, in which the handles for the cake plate are removable and become serving utensils. The sleek design is accentuated by an elegantly curved handle.
Maximilian will be graduating from his program this summer. We hope to see more from this talented young designer.
