Blockbau is a furniture company founded by former architecture students Johann Kuhn and Kevin Rack as a framework for the output of their corresponding studio.
Our work in the studio is interdisciplinary and highly influenced by our architectural background. Thus, all of our designs are located at the interface of furniture and object featuring very sculptural aesthetics. Nevertheless, they are fully ergonomic and at the same time uncompromisingly straightforward.
As we follow a very spatial-structural approach, our furniture can – in an abstract context – also be read as architectural structures.
It is important to us that at the end of each design process there is a piece of furniture that not only survives for years because of its construction and materiality, but also provides joy for years through its timelessness and – despite its expressivness – fits into a wide range of environments. That is our understanding of sustainability.
