Eric Degenhardt was born in Cologne, Germany. He studied Architecture at the Rheinisch Westfälisch Technische Hochschule in Aachen and has worked on several architectonical projects before he switched his focus towards furniture and industrial design - after spending a time in London.
Taking his idea of space and architecture, it was a logical step to move away from the big scale and move towards the smaller scale. It is the furniture and the products, together with the users, that finally define the function of an architectonical space. He tends towards formal lightness - letting the pieces hover, with sleek shapes and clean details and a minimum of different materials. Since setting up his own studio in Cologne in 2000, he has developed furniture, packaging and architectonical spaces for international clients including:

AEROME (Germany), BASF COATINGS (Germany), BÖWER (Germany), BOFFI (Italy), LAMY (Germany), MAGAZIN (Germany) OBJECT COLLECTION (Canada), PAOLA LENTI (Italy), PROGETTI (Italy), RICHARD LAMPERT (Germany), SCHÖNBUCH (Germany), WILKHAHN (Germany)

Many of his designs have received international design awards - and have been exhibited worldwide. He was guest professor at the Free University of Bolzano (Italy), he still teaches as invited lecturer or critic and holds workshops across europe.

Sideboard 180 / 240
Six milimeter wooden sheets, a horizontal gap and the long tabular steel legs characterize the boards and give them a simple and clear – graphical appearance.
The slightly sloping fronts – and the overlapping sidepanels – dissolve the compact body, that is based on a 600mm grid.
Veneered in elm, they are available in 1800mm and 2400mm length - with doors, drawers or open compartments.
Its surface is finished either with a clear lacquer, fine white or telegrey matt varnish – that let them look and feel like raw porcelain

Cup Sofa and Armchair
With the cup range I tried to make an armchair and a sofa - kind of light - resolving it into thin elements/pieces. For me it is important that the furniture may be positioned in the centre of the room - not only against the walls. That means that the pieces cannot have a ›backside‹ - the sofa has become a mixture between a sofa and bench and although thin - it's very comfortable. A 2,5-seater was launched at the cologne fair in january 2008.

Redesign Hirche Lounge Chair
Degenhardt's redesign of the Hirche chair was trickier. »I was not sure about changing the details of somebody else's design« he says. He solved the problem rather cleverly - by changing the context of the object without compromising the beauty of the original. Herbert Hirche (who studied under Mies van der Rohe) originally designed the chair for his own sitting room. »He offered it to Knoll,« says Lampert, »but they didn't want it, so it never went into production.« Degenhardt turned the rather low-slung armchair from a sitting-room object into a garden object - using a waterproof fabric, for instance, and laquered steel tubing to make it suitable for use outdoors. He made tiny interventions in the design, which suddenly made the chair contemporary instead of vintage.
