Berlin-born, London-based Corinna Warm is praised for her innovative and surprising work.
Like Drum, which holds fruit without a bowl and flowers without a pot. Place a wooden lid on it, to create a regular coffee table with storage space. Perhaps we should just call it a bowl-tray-table?
Simple, yet surprising. Berlin-born designer Corinna Warm finds beauty in simple, natural materials and shapes. But despite their simplicity, her products often reveal an unexpected element. A hidden drawer turns out to be an additional work surface, and when you look closer, a table is actually ... a bowl!
Warm’s pieces are intelligent, innovative – and beautiful. And perhaps a clue as to why her design looks as it does is that, unlike many fellow designers, she does not work primarily in front of her computer, but creates her own brand in close collaboration with skilled craftspeople. Functionality and quality equal longevity and sustainability is also of great importance.
Corinna Warm was born in Berlin in 1978. She came to the UK to study at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, where she graduated in Product Design in 2002. She then worked for several well-known contemporary designers in Milan and London before establishing her London-based company Warm in 2007 which designs products, furniture and interiors. Warm has participated in exhibitions in London and Milan, and has been featured in the press, both in the UK and internationally.
