For someone to make a breakthrough like this at the start of his career is quite extraordinary: David Geckeler designed his “Nerd Chair” while still studying in Copenhagen, today “Nerd” is the chair in the Muuto portfolio. Shortly afterwards Geckeler teamed up with his friend and former fellow student Frank Michels, and in 2013 they opened Geckeler Michels design studio in Berlin. So far the young duo has launched ten products, which cannot be easily categorized. Their objects have a certain edge and boldness – like the “Acme” chair, the “Bias” side table and the “Ossa” shelf system. All three products will soon be produced by manufacturers. The only thing the two are still working on is striking a better balance between the radical nature of their designs and the commercial quality of the product.
