What Do We Know About The Author?

Timothy Schreiberwas born in 1973 in German. He initially trained in cabinetmaking in Germany before studyingarchitectureand designat theBauhaus Universityin Weimar (Germany), the University of Stuttgart (Germany) and the Westminster University in London (United Kingdom). During and after his studies he worked with numerous architects, including the GermanGuenther Behinshand the winner of the Pritzker Price in London,Zaha Hadid. In 2003, he spent a year living and working in China where he was involved in the design of the Beijing 2008 Water Olympic Aquatic Center (Water cube). Since 2005, he has paid particular attention to the development ofcustom furnitureandart objects.

Themain cornerstonesof Timothy’s design approach are a predominantlydigital workflowand a strong focus onmultidisciplinarity. He uses a wide range of digital tools to incorporate various forms of “micro intelligence” and “scientific phenomena” into the concepts of his works. During its design process, complex virtual models emerge which are then materialized by choosing the most appropriate available digital or traditional production methods. In 2013, Schreiber started working infused glasswith his “icicle tables” as his first series of furniture in this material. He applied the technique of fusion of traditional Chinese glass to this Liuli, making his projects the first LiuLi furniture. In 2015, Schreiber showed his first works (Table Methodology) in the Bronze cast during the SOFA show in Chicago. He won several awards and prizes including theRed dot design award. He is the only designer who has won this award in furniture category three times consecutively.

The PAN_07 chair was designed and manufactured by Timothy Schreiber in collaboration withSean Hannatakes inspiration fromadvanced cellular latticesthat occur in nature to minimize weight but maximize resistance to force. The design method with which this chair was made combines the principles ofevolutionandartificial intelligence创建一个响应的材料中的发言ent by increasing the density in the areas required to better withstand the external forces applied when the chair is in use. In fact, on the inside it is made of afine gratingthat reduces the weight to a minimum in order to increase the resistance. This kind of control over the internal properties of the material is only possible with today’s moderndigital fabrication technologythat creates a modular structure with spatial structure ofsmall interconnected struts. A section through the vertical leg of the chair, for example, reveals cells with greater density towards the surface to counteract the higher tensions or compressive stresses that occur when bending. In 2006, Timothy Schreiber won a Red Dot Award for his Pan 07 chair design.

TheE-volve tablerepresents a modern indoor/outdoor garden table. It isorganicin its composition andsmoothto the touch. The design of thisoriginal designtable was conceived by thenatural “growth” process. The design of the E-volve table, by the German designer Timothy Schreiber, is evocative ofnatural forms, which translates into a unique piece of sculptural art. Thegraceful,elegantandfluid designof this round dining table imitates the organic forms ofnaturewhile the three table legs grow and branch together to form a solid andstable baseon which the transparent table top rests. The extra cleartransparent glassallows this unique design table to be admired from all angles. The highly polishedstainless steelframe gives this interior/exterior table anultra-modern lookand makes an unforgettable statement in any design garden or modern interior space. In 2007, Timothy Schreiber won a Red Dot Award for his E-volved table design.

This chair is a nice piece of Timothy Schreiber collection.Morphogenesis Chaisewas created by the English designer and artist, describing his work as “pop modernism” and the bedside chair iscomputer-designedand hatched bycarbon fiberwith asoft microfibre surfaceto give you a complete space to philosophize over life. On the other hand, it isart, and such a thing is to keep the price or even rise in the long term. Schreiber’s design process of Morphogenesis Chaise started with anintensive research process自然结构系统和微观结构. The gained understanding was then translated into the realm of furniture design while constantly shiftingvarious parameterskeeping basic requirements likecomfort, sizeandusabilityin mind. This process wasfully digitizedand computer aided up to the level of structural testing, dimensioning and optimization of the individual elements. In 2008, Timothy Schreiber won a Red Dot Award for his Morphogenesis Chaise design.

“Every time I start on a new job I try to start completely from scratch aiming to create something completely new and unique.”

“I believe that these days it is even more important than before to have a broad knowledge of of design history, because sometimes one might have a very good idea, but unfortunately someone else has had the same idea before already.

Timothy Schreiber is one of those designers who leaves no one indifferent to his work. Inspired bynatureand highly driven by today’s advancements indigital technology, he brings a breath of fresh air that has fascinated many people. He implements cutting edge equipment and techniques from development to finished product. His pieces combinecomfortwithfunctionalityandimaginationwithcutting-edge design. Schreiber’s designs are the outcome of his ambition to delve into andchallenge boundariesbetween architecture, digital design, manufacturing methods and social/environmental sustainability. He isinspired by everythingaround him and states that some minor changes in the shape could allow the design to use a thinner metal and thus make the box lighter. Naturally, as far as my most organic forms are concerned, he has found much inspiration innatural phenomena, mainly through the study of microscopic cell structures. Contemporary rapid production technology opens the door to new concepts that were previously not achievable.
