Initially designed for Chicago based brand CB2 Drommen Bed quickly became a bestseller and was finally introduced in fall 2016 for european mattress sizes handcrafted in Germany as part of our new NORDIC SPACE FURNITURE COLLECTION.

 

We focus on ecological aspects and manufacture the bed in solid oak wood with natural oiled finish and linen/cotton upholstery fabric. Locally produced in South Germany (Oberfranken – a region with a strong tradition in fabrication of furniture) we use timber cut in nearby forests which have been operated sustainably for generations. Avoiding any unnecessary transportation we aim to keep climate footprint as low as possible and deliver our furniture directly from production plant to final customers all over Europe.

 

Available for all standard mattress sizes, Nordic Space Bed provides high comfort with upholstered headboards not only when sleeping but also as soft backrests when reading or sharing breakfast on sunday morning…

 

Nordic Space Bed is build to last!

 

In 2006 Jannis Ellenberger established a studio for product- and interior design in Bremen, Germany, which offers design services to manufacturing companies worldwide.
Next to his work as a designer he realized an own furniture collection: ellenberger furniture can be purchased in his own exclusive online shop and are sold to select retailers in Europe.

Jannis originally designed drommen bed for CB2, US brand based in Chicago. Drommen bed very quickly became one of CB2’s bestsellers. Because the designer was asked so many times, if the bed was available for european mattress sizes as well, he soon decided to introduce the item as Nordic Space Bed. A chair and sofa is also part of the new ellenberger collection.

A new pavilion as part of an old north german farm was used for the photo shoot. Designed by Bremen based architect brothers Wirth, old refurbished bricks from a run-down farm nearby were used for the small multi-purpose building plus the huge planks used for the doors were taken from an old oak tree which grew on the very same property but was struck by lightning. Thank you so much Wirth Architects!

private space furniture collection

PRIVATE SPACE FURNITURE COLLECTION

 

It took some years for the collection to grow together out of several single items. But having met Torsten Anders, CEO of the Anders Wellness- und Möbelmanufaktur GmbH, certainly helped to finalize pre-commercial development and finally introduce the furniture collection in the end of 2012.

 

Since living room and kitchen have been growing together as the public spaces of a private home, the original conception of the furniture collection met the same trend taking place at the private areas such as bathroom and bedroom – that is why it is called PRIVATE SPACE. Clear and straight design, soft white in combination with natural wood and open space interior arrangements create an atmosphere of comfort, ease and recreation.

 

Whereas washstand, bench or bed of the PRIVATE SPACE furniture collection combine bath- and bedroom to the private zone of an apartment, the collection also extends to the “public” space of a home, which is the place you share with your guests. Well suitable for office use also, the clear and straight designs of these furniture pick up traditional timber joints, but still create a modern atmosphere of comfort and ease.

 

 

DESIGN AND PRODUCTION

 

A good idea has no value without the perfect teamwork of everyone being involved in its realization. “I always try to add a warm touch of ease and recreation to my designs in contrast to the stressful outside world.” That is why Jannis Ellenberger continues to use wood as a natural material for his works. Designed with a lot of care and sensitivity he realized the PRIVATE SPACE collection in close cooperation with furniture manufacturer Torsten Anders Wellness- und Möbelmanufaktur GmbH. Combining modern serial production with strong quality controls, all items of the collection are manufactured under one roof. Processing solid wood requires not only special knowledge and experience, but also a passion for the material – a true basis for furniture that last more than a lifetime.

iF product design award | 2014

ellenbergerdesign wins iF product design award for Washstand

 

Press Release  19-02-2014

 

For 60 years, the iF product design award has been an internationally recognized label for award-winning design and the iF brand has become a symbol for outstanding achievements in design.

 

We are delighted to let you know that – out of more than 3000 entries – the washstand as part of our PRIVATE SPACE FURNITURE COLLECTION has won an iF product design award 2014 and will be recognized with the renowned iF label!

 

Since living room and kitchen have been growing together as the public spaces of a private home, this furniture collection meets the same trend taking place at the private areas such as bath and bedroom. The washstand is based on the tradition of a washstand pitcher which was used on a simple table. Clear and straight design, white and soft colors combined with natural wood create an atmosphere of comfort, ease and recreation. Next to a mirror and storage units, it is now also available in a wall mounted version with drawer. Its two-level counter top is molded out of one piece and combines functionality and aesthetics to install a more open space within home.

 

In 2006 Jannis Ellenberger established a studio for product- and interior design in Bremen, Germany, which offers design services to manufacturing companies and is mainly working on designs of furniture, lighting and accessories.
Next to his collaboration with several national and international companies he realized a furniture collection running under the label of his own studio. Since one year he operates an exclusive online shop offering the furniture of his collection next to further select items he designed for other labels.

 

For upcoming furniture fair in Milan he will join forces with Austrian design studio MARCHGUT for a concerted show within Ventura Lambrate. As a kind of retrospective, both studios will present highlights of their past works as well as newly introduced products. The new Washstand will of course also be on show. 8.-13.4.2014 – Via Ventura 15, Milano, Italia
