13&9 Design GmbH -
The Soul of Design
In addition to being intricately linked to INNOCAD Architecture, 13&9’s interdisciplinary team’s cooperation with specialist partners has led to creating product collections from concept through production in the spheres of lighting, furniture, floor coverings, fashion and accessories. Their work relies on the interplay between architecturally-inspired forms and fashion and explores issues such as modularity, compatibility, flexibility and transformation in development of new products. The overall results are unique designs that combine functional necessities and innovations with conceptual aesthetics, which also offer an emotional component, adding to the product value, “the soul” of 13&9 Design.
The creative community at 13&9 is both a design studio for international companies – VITEO OUTDOORS, XAL, LANDE, ARTIFORT, QUINZE & MILAN, BUZZISPACE, WEVER & DUCRE?, ROBERT LA ROCHE, and MOHAWK GROUP – and its own label which produces and sells their own products.
