Hungary’s light industry provides outstanding facilities for manufacturing a small series of high-quality furniture. Despite the young age of our company we pulled off a great success both inland and internationally owing to our commitment in design and quality and our perception of approaching furniture production in a unique way. Upholstered furniture fundamentally differs from other surrounding objects and home furnishings because its final form is achieved not by rigid materials but with the special arrangement of soft materials and textures. There are no two identical pieces, since to the present day it is made in every phase by meticulous handwork, based on pattern design like a well-tailored suit. To produce a well functioning couch, appropriate ergonomics is very important and since the users’ habits can be completely different, for optimal design we have to know the needs of our clients. HANNABI customises its couches in a unique way: not only textiles and accessories but dimensions of the couch, seat height, width parameters and firmness of padding are also fit for the customer.

Jake studied Industrial Design at Central St Martins College of Art and Design. He graduated in 1994 and began work designing retail interiors, working on shops, cafes and clubs. Jake then set up his own workshop, purchasing a mill and a lathe and started experimenting and developing products. His studio and workshop are now based in Clerkenwell.

Jake is happiest in the workshop trying to turn a paper concept into a reality and is proud that Motorlight is British designed and developed. His approach is to first conceive a product and control all processes through to manufacture – unusual in a world where product design is usually separate from the development and manufacturing side. Jake believes that having a ‘hands on’ approach to creating prototypes, testing and subsequently finishing products is an essential part of the design process.

Jake leads a small team of experienced design engineers in his studio. They focus their efforts on coming up with new product ideas that are visually stunning and go where no-one has gone before in providing innovative, functional benefits.

When Licht im Raum was founded by Johannes and Lisa Dinnebier in 1956, the lighting planner’s job outline was almost unknown. First and foremost, light had to be bright and secondarily it had to represent status. What people thought of as good light in the mid 50s, were chandeliers for the most part. The new company had completely different ideas, though. For them, light was a means of design in archi-tecture in the first place. And only then a question of watt and volt. With Licht im Raum, young avantgarde architects like Egon Eiermann found kindred spirits with whom they could realize their ideas of lighting planning in its entirety. ” We still feel obliged to the tradition to use light as a means of architectural design “, says Daniel Klages, Licht im Raum’s present manager. “It is basically a side effect that the rooms get light afterwards.
