Press Release  17-06-2015


Modular furniture system debe.deline which has been developed in close cooperation with kids furniture manufacturer De Breuyn is now nominated for GERMAN DESIGN AWARD 2016.




“The German Design Award is the international premium prize of the German Design Council. Its goal: discovering, presenting and awarding unique design trends. Every year, top-quality submissions from product and communications design are awarded, all of which are in their own way ground-breaking in the international design landscape. The German Design Award, started in 2012, is already one of the best-known design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles,” says German Design Council about its award.




Kids always want to be around their parents. They are learning by imitating adults and have an unappeasable desire for growing up and being part of it! Besides the needs of families have changed dramatically over the past years.


So the central idea behind this design is not to separate kids from the adults world. This modular system of storage, working and seating furniture considers both, adults and children‘s requirements and suits private, public and workspaces not necessarily connected to kids.


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 a couple of years he operates an exclusive online shop offering the furniture of his collection next to further select items he designed for other labels.
