Home visit at Max Longin
- the Mannheimian designer who reinvented the bed
"If you mean, the terms "reduced" and "sensual" are opposites then you should pay a visit to the designer Max Longin. ... Turning doors made of oak and stainless steel underline the open concept with its flowing transitions between living and work area and that integrated showroom. Despite the reticent design the areas come across neither stylish overloaded nor undercooled - but in a "earthy" way very sensual. ... . The connection of unorthodox, simple elements with warm nature materials finds their correspondence in the design objects of the 42 years old mathematician. .... "
