(jana zielinski) The star of Julia Lohmann has begun to shine. This year, she was chosen as one of the designers of the future in the prestigious selection of Design Miami Basel. She also appeared on the cover of the British magazine ICON. And deservedly so. Her handwriting is highly visible. Her topic is relatively specific. She is primarily interested in organic shapes. Literally. She has created mouse babies from porcelain, lamps from polypores, and her most remarkable project - Cow Benches.
Julia Lohman says, “We do not want meals to remind us of the animals from which they were made. At the same time, we make use of animals in all possible ways.”
Her leather benches bear the names of individual cows. Belinda, Anoushka, Ronja, and Antonia are friendly benches; each of them is a strong personality and an original piece. Like Julia Lohmann, who was born in Hildesheim, Germany in 1977 and studied product and graphic design at the Royal College of Art in London, the city she now calls home. Her work can be found at www.julialohmann.co.uk, including brilliant drawings, such as one of a homeless man in a park in New York.
