Thoroughly nice: Johanna Grawunder isn’t easy to pin down. I had already met Johanna in Cologne last summer and now again in “her” trend living room in Pure Village at the imm cologne. She builds houses, designs interiors and creates classic industrial products for clients like Boffi, Flos, B&B or WMF. But above all, she creates exclusive furniture and lighting for galleries in Europe and the USA, often integrating LEDs and seemingly dematerialising the forms. For her, light is an important medium for designing the interior as part of the whole. Nor does lighting always have to be a stand-alone item, believes Johanna Grawunder: “If you integrate light into furniture, it’s simply there – and takes on a whole new quality.” The self-confident and candid American is enthralling and I hope we stay in touch. The interview has appeared in publications such as Swiss interior design magazine Atrium. To find out more, click here for the interview.
