Aust & Amelung design studio

Based in Kassel, Germany, Aust & Amelung is a design studio specialized in furniture, interiors and architecture for exhibitions, founded by Miriam Aust and Sebastian Amelung.
Their work was presented at several national and international exhibitions, fairs and galleries, including the “Interieur Design Biennale Kortijk”, “Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milano” and “imm Cologne”.
We are totally in love with the simple but surprising design of the duo, the high quality of their furniture and their incredible perfect sense for colours and shapes.
So let’s introduce them with a short interview:

1. Miriam, when did you start with your own studio Aust & Amelung?

We founded our studio in 2011.

2. Sebastian, where do you take your inspiration from and do you have an iconic?

We are interested in the way people interact with objects in the daily life and the changes that happen through new developments in society. 
Often we collect images and materials that are connected to a certain topic. We use them to make collages 2D and 3D and bring them in a new context.
This kind of observation and transformation leads to new products.

3. If you would have the chance to design something for kids, what would it be?

An object free from categorization like a chair, table or shelf. It would be nice to design something that gives space for children`s fantasy.

Hopefully you will design some more new poetic products soon, we are more than curious and would love to see what you have in mind!
