Snug Studio: Hannover

February 23, 2010

Ready to be inspired? I’m excited to present another shared workspace between two fantastic designers who happen to live and work in Hannover, Germany. Yesterday I presented the atelier of Sidsel and Line in Denmark and to continue in the spirit of shared paths we’ll visit Snug studio which happens to be in my neighborhood so I visit this space regularly. Snug studio is part showroom, part office and part workspace and is a collaboration between Interior Designer Kerstin Reilemann from Domestic Candy and Architect Berit Luedecke that recently opened in December 2009. (You may remember Kerstin, I shared her home in my column over at Cookie magazine last year.)

This lovely space is open daily and will soon be open 24/7 as they will launch a web shop here on March 1st (bookmark this link!). Don’t worry, I’ll post a reminder on decor8 when the time comes so you can pick out some goodies for yourself. If you cannot wait until March 1, some of these products are sold under the Domestic Candy label over in Kerstin’s DaWanda shop online.

Kerstin and Berit decided to launch Snug together because their design sensibilities are very similar, they like to experiment with turning old things into new ones in addition to creating their own designs — and both enjoy clean, modern lines with a nod to their German heritage. Only their products, mostly handmade from wood, have a bit of a twist – they’ve incorporated elements of traditional and modern Dutch and Swedish design along with traditional German items. I enjoy seeing their unique translation of what German, Dutch and Swedish design looks like combined, at least through their eyes — it’s a fresh and beautiful interpretation.

From ceramic candle holders inspired by traditional cake molds, pendant lights created from vintage porcelain coffee filters, and a wooden bench made using recycled chair backs with new, modern seating surfaces, Snug is a design studio with a fresh approach. Their shop is a place to buy something beautiful or to simply visit for a little inspiration, walking away with new ideas of your own. I’m so happy to have Berit and Kerstin and their beautiful Snug studio in Hannover!

    I love plates on the wall and those blue & whites are dreamy! How do you hang plates without the hangers that have sort-of “claws” that you see at the top and bottom of the plate? Or am I just not seeing the hanger in the photo? Thanks! :)

      Moline – Ha ha, well we try to rock. But it’s hard because people can be oh so very traditional and against change here. Thank goodness all of us who are not that way are starting to find each other and pool together. :)

    Oh, that’s he place next to Carrots and Coffee (btw, have you seen that cafe on the other side of the street, next to Lulu? They have a zillion of your bathroom pendants! :)
    The first thing that came into my mind was: lovely floor! Next one: AND a lovely wall!
    From what I saw from outside, the place looked a bit empty but I’m sure it’s going to change with the growing number of fans. It certainly is very stylish!

    Proprietors like these have really helped me see how much of what we discard can be repurposed into fun, clever uses of the old.

    I think I just fell in love with their studio. I think next time we are in Germany we need to make a stop in Hannover.

    Wonderful Aesthetic! The clean white lines and straight forward cut-out shapes feel so fresh, like Spring. Looking forward to Snug’s shop debut. Thanks for posting their goodies!
