Jakob Timpe - Un/applied Arts
This book offers new insights into the work of the German product designer Jakob Timpe. Presenting furniture and lighting fixtures produced by brands such as Alias, Marset, Serien, Vondingen, and Nils Holger Moormann, as well as unpublished studies, it depicts how the inherent language of Timpe’s imagery establishes a very individual, well-founded approach to design. By addressing the applicability of a range of objects such as chairs, standing lamps, shelving systems, and stools in an unbiased and clear manner, it oscillates between monograph, magazine, and catalogue. A conversation between Timpe and Markus Frenzl illuminates the designer’s approach.
