TIP FROM THE KARE VISUAL MERCHANDISING TEAM ”How can you design the perfect picture wall? We‘ve got a few ideas on the subject: firstly all the pictures have to have something in common – we‘ve decided in favour of a black frame. After that you can mix the images to your hearts content! Equal distances give the wall a harmonious look, and of course you will need a spirit level!“

INTERVIEW

OUR DESIGN MISSION Boldly journeying to new design worlds

62

WWW.KARE-DESIGN.COM // LIFE IS STYLE 2018


Jürgen Reiter, KARE founder & CEO & Wolfgang Hückelheim, KARE Creative Director

F

or more than 35 years KARE has represented a passion for creating exciting furniture design and distributing this worldwide with a touch of rock ‚n‘ roll. Design fans all around the world are in love with KARE‘s furniture, accessories and lamps. Thanks to them KARE products are now available in more than 100 shops in nearly 50 countries. Creative Director Wolfgang Hückelheim travels the world in search of new inspiration..

Is there a universal design language which works the same way in every culture? Wolfgang Hückelheim: Our concrete expectations of design are also influenced by our surroundings and our personal preferences. But because every culture develops under individual circumstances, it also appreciates different looks and designs. This is why there‘s no such thing as a design which is loved and appreciated by everybody everywhere. And creative design isn‘t interested in this anyway, because it‘s the many differences which represent the exciting ingredient from which new ideas are developed. Can a global brand really be individual? WH: Definitely. We continue to be free thinkers who appeal to special people who are open to the whole universe. Our KARE fans love individuality, regardless of whether it‘s in an individual city or throughout the world. Creative free spirits are everywhere and they treasure the diversity offered by KARE and our unconventional combinations. And by the way, individuality generates diversity. Those who are really individual therefore know how important tolerance is. You also see this in our franchisees: no matter what part of the world they come from, they‘re all connected by a special vibe, a positive wavelength. You can imagine what effect this has at the Oktoberfest! Even though everybody there could not be more different, the atmosphere is fantastic every year. It‘s like a concert of your own favourite band: you meet fellow spirits, in our case people who love creativity and the exciting journey towards new design worlds.

How is a Kare collection created? Is there a standard workflow? WH: Yes. there is. It all begins with inspiration on journeys, influences from outside and from our friends, staff, friends, music and the theatre. Jürgen Reiter really enjoys creating mood boards for the collections, which are really useful instrument. I personally prefer doing it in my head. We work towards the mood of the concept with colour charts from the Pantone palette and then gradually decide on the materials and surfaces on the basis of our ideas. We create the design for a complete collection, or develop an existing KARE collection further. We then use this as the basis for test balloons, and when we have the product physically standing in our showroom at the end of the entire process, it‘s like giving birth – from the inner world of ideas to outer reality. For this purpose you spend 200 days a year travelling. What‘s your motivation in subjecting yourself to such stress? Are you on a mission? WH: Naturally, if you worry about having to deal with people all the time or if you‘re afraid of flying, for example, then it‘s stressful. But travel is also a way of life. Jürgen Reiter and I, we‘ve been doing it for 35 years now. We don‘t know anything different. A mission (smiles)? Yes I suppose you could say so. It‘s our mission to communicate aesthetics, enjoyment and a love of life. I take it as a huge compliment when our customers buy something that Jürgen Reiter and I have created and then place it in their homes. For me conveying tolerance, aesthetics and colour is something that gives me pleasure - it‘s not an obligation. It puts any stress that I experience into the background. If your occupation consists of doing what you love, you never have to work.

With so much travel, do you also see anything of the countries you visit? WH: Of course – for me that‘s the favourite part. In addition to many visits to designers we also travel long distances in order to check out the workshops where our products are created. You can experience real adventures far from the usual tourist centres. You develop contacts with people locally and experience them in their authentic environment. And then of course there are also locations which we simply want to see and we also plan these into our tours – after all, it‘s all in the service of inspiration. In concrete terms, how do you find the hotspots in order to get to know the style of a region? WH: Markets, street art, creative districts, word of mouth are all important in this respect. We often just ask the local people and then throw ourselves into the tumult. Jürgen Reiter likes saying: „We always need to take new directions,“ but this can land you in the most absurd situations. We‘ve been in some strange places, and have even finished up in the jungle. Hotspots are generally generated where many people get together – this is often in the open air and in an improvised manner. You simply need to trust your own instincts and do a bit of exploration. You go wherever you can hear music playing. Dance theatre and street artists – they provide the real feeling of being alive.

”REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT‘S IN AN INDIVIDUAL CITY OR THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, CREATIVE FREE SPIRITS ARE EVERYWHERE AND THEY TREASURE THE DIVERSITY OFFERED BY KARE.“ Wolfgang Hückelheim

How do you manage to feel your way into these many different furnishing styles, some of which are contradictory, and remain authentic at the same time? WH: Authenticity is a character feature. I do it like an actor coming to terms with a role in the theatre. Music, colours and scents help to get you in the right frame of mind. You have to open your heart, feel empathy. In my imagination I try to enter into the world in which our customers live, and to identify what they are looking for. It often happens that I will think of a particular product, and this can then be developed into an entire series. In my photographic memory I then have a complete picture of the room I will be furnishing with these products. I don‘t need Excel for this. In addition to aesthetics, sub-culture and artistic districts, are there also other areas which inspire you to new designs? WH: The major cultural events such as Art Basel, for example, always represent a style update – and then of course there is also the fashion business. Fabrics, colours, new points of view. They‘re always worth looking at. The automobile industry also shows developments which can be transferred to furniture design. Cars are no longer simply status symbols. Above all they need to be practical, nice and compact for the city and of course low emission. The same applies to apartments, which can be created less in terms of expense and instead be made much more individual, personal and with a special focus on their functionality. These are all aspects which flow into our work, because they reflect the requirements of our customers. We stretch out our feelers in all directions.


Society is changing in the course of time and depending on the country and region, people are preoccupied with many different subjects. Do their furnishing styles also make this noticeable? WH: Let‘s look at how people eat, for example. We‘ve all seen the illustrations of the wealthy of antiquity enjoying their grapes in a relaxed, reclining position while being entertained by dancers and musicians. It‘s all focused on pleasure. And then the subjective self-discipline is suddenly elevated to the highest virtue and all of a sudden we see people sitting rigidly in tight clothing around massive, dark tables and eating with cutlery. This then leads to a society where work becomes the dominant feature. There is hardly time to eat and meals consist of a quick sandwich somewhere. A lot of people nowadays eat while they‘re on the move, and of course such developments are also reflected in the way people furnish their homes. In the countryside people‘s furnishing styles are still highly conservative: they appreciate timeless design and furniture that will last many years. In contrast, for city dwellers flexibility is often more important. People move house more often and buy something new whenever they relocate, only taking with them their favourite pieces. In this way everybody has his or her own priorities. Thank you for these fascinating insights. To finish off with, to you have an expert tip for us about how we can create that special ‚wow‘ effect in our living room, dining room or bedroom? WH: Don‘t let your personal memories gather dust in old cardboard boxes. Arrange all your treasures in lots of different Picture frames into a concentrated collage. You can frame stuff that you found on the beach, your grandma‘s chain, your mother‘s gloves – in fact anything which radiates positive energy. Then simply place all these pictures on the wall as a group. It will create a powerful, private Collage. And anyone looking for a more uniform look can paint all these objects in a single colour. And those looking for especially attractive frames should simply come to us.

KARE INSIDE

GET THE LOOK:

INDUSTRIAL STYLE

Don‘t we all dream of the perfect loft apartment? Rooms flooded with light, brick walls, a concrete floor… The total package of urban romanticism? Admittedly there are very few rooms which provide these preconditions, but we‘ve got the perfect collection for lovers of the industrial furnishing style who don‘t want to

66

WWW.KARE-DESIGN.COM // LIFE IS STYLE 2018

invest a fortune but at the same time are looking for special eyecatchers. X-Factory represents a mixture of the concrete look and fronts of solid pine, while the legs are at an angle in the mid-century style and feature a decorative crossbar.


TO THE INDUSTRIAL STYLE FOR THE HOME IN ONLY A FEW STEPS: Full of character and yet not obtrusive, either standing alone or as a group, this collection goes straight to the heart. We show how you can create a home in the industrial loft style at little expense.

LIGHT: Lamps can be suspended from old pipes, light bulbs can be left visible – we love the kind of retro-look lighting which creates a warm glow with a vintage feel but is equipped with LEDs. These create an authentic effect in a metal fitting with cables loosely wound around shelves or wood.

WALLS: A dark wall adds atmosphere to the room, looks exciting and is a great eyecatcher. We‘re especially excited about the version with blackboard paint – on it we can write down our ideas, shopping lists and messages in chalk. Friends can leave greetings, while children can experiment and be creative, reinventing their surroundings every day.

DESIGN TIP The giant cactus is our favourite

DECO: Cacti are perfect for people who enjoy travelling and don‘t have a lot of time to invest in looking after plants. And anyone wishing to be on the safe side can even select decorative objects with the cactus look.

FURNITURE: Here you need a colourful mixture. Whether they‘re stand-alone items or an entire series, apothecary‘s cabinets and designer pieces need space to make an impact, and should not be grouped closely together. The solution here is a mixture of modern design, combined with basics made of wood, iron, concrete and leather. Here heirlooms meet design classics. And those who don‘t have the good fortune to inherit a high-quality piece of furniture with a history, can always fall back on a Cubist-style sofa made of top quality leather.

FOR HUNTERS AND GATHERERS Do you like to show what you‘ve got? Or do you prefer to know that your treasures are behind locked doors? We‘ve got solutions which provide lots of space, eyecatchers for all rooms, even large doors which are camouflaged as small drawers… Whether it‘s modern and stylish with high-gloss fronts, cosy and original with hide details, or glossy and splendid with a mirrored surface: the selection is huge, and of course there are always things that you want to stow away.

THE STORY BEHIND: SHANTI The designs of these distinctive articles from KARE‘s Shanti series are imaginative and rich in symbols. They tell the story of the centuries-old craft of woodcarving in India. In the past many people in India built their houses out of wood, and home owners had their property elaborately decorated with paintings and carvings. Master woodcarvers created intricate reliefs and patterns made of wood for the facades, doors and windows. A richly decorated house was also a sign of wealth. Today houses in India are built of stone, with the result that more and more of the historic wooden houses are disappearing, together with their beautful carvings.

Our partner in India preserves the valuable woodcarvings, not just because they radiate charm but also to create something new with the matterial. This appreciation for valuable resources, which we refer to as ‚recycling‘, has a long tradition in India. It was in our workshop there that our design team hit upon the idea of integrating these carvings into furniture fronts like a kind of jigsaw puzzle. We deliberately worked with the rough, original forms, so that the history of a traditional craft is today reproduced in an authentic manner.

THIS IS THE WOOD WE‘RE CARVED FROM

Authentic furniture design doesn‘t happen by accident The natural grain of KARE furniture gives every piece its individual character. The following pages will show what fascinating characteristics our varieties of wood have, where we apply them and what care they like best!

WWW.KARE-DESIGN.COM // LIFE IS STYLE 2018


THE ATTENTO OAK SERIES The typical features by which this domestic hardwood can be identified are the clearly visible annual rings and its dark pores which are arranged in circles. Oak is very hard, robust and really heavy. Furniture made from it will last a very long time. Oak is even so durable and weather-resistant that it has been used for centuries to make wine barrels. If not treated the surface turns a greyish-brown over time. Our oak series ATTENTO has therefore as a precaution been treated in oil, which retains the natural beauty of its surface and gives it a silky finish. For optimum care we recommend refreshing the surface with our wood-care oil.

THE X-FACTORY FIR SERIES The very light, almost white wood of the fir tree has grain which is hardly visible, but instead features dark knotholes. This domestic wood tends to be soft and is often used for industrial purposes, for example for making pallets. In our X-FACTORY series we were inspired by the charm of the industrial loft: the light wood was combined in a distinctive style with a robust concrete-look frame and handles made of rough iron. The X-FACTORY FIR series: an authentic urban style which has conquered our hearts with its lightfooted balance on charming retro feet. If you‘re just as enthusiastic about it as we are, then check out our section on ‚Industrial Style for the Home‘ in this magazine.

THE PURO MANGO SERIES The colours of mango wood can vary considerably, ranging from light to nearly reddish-brown, with the dark sections contrasting with the light ones. The wood of the mango tree is hard and at the same time low in weight. This makes it perfect for the furniture of a mobile generation. Its hardness makes it ideal for detailed carving, which is why we have had our PURO series with its rich detail carved from premium-quality mango wood. Playful design meets easy-care mango – in our opinion a dream team! Because this furniture has only been treated with water paint, KARE‘s furniture care Spray is ideal for looking after it. The artistic carvings can simply be cleaned with the small upholstery brush of your vacuum cleaner.

THE BROOKLYN SHEESHAM SERIES Also known as ‚rosewood‘, this fast-growing wood can be identified by its distinctive grain and the characteristic differences between the inner and outer wood. The design of the BROOKLYN series plays with the individual lines of the grain. As with a cappuccino, the various shades of brown merge with one another. For those who find this a little too exciting, the dark walnut stained variant is the ideal choice. The sophisticated design of BROOKLYN is rounded off by the bevelled edges. This is done by hand, by the way. In principle sheesham is a robust variety of wood, but this series too will benefit from being pampered with our Spray furniture care.

THE NATURE LINE ACACIA SERIES In terms of robustness and hardness this wood even beats oak. Acacia wood is not just tough but it‘s also flexible and very heavy. The elegant grain features clearly separated annual rings and striped markings. Fresh acacia wood has a light colour, which darkens with increasing age into an attractive golden brown. In order to enable the filigree markings of this wood to gleam at their best, we have waxed the surfaces. This means that wax-based products should also be used for its care. Our Wax Spray care product provides the ideal dose, which can then be followed up by a polish with a soft cloth.

THE RAILWAY RECYCLED WOOD SERIES Of course we are‘t dealing with one single type of wood here, but the numerous advantages of recycled materials – wood in particular – are so great that we would like to mention them in this context. We have already created a number of furniture series in which we have given old wood a second term of life. Our RAILWAY series consists of old hardwoods which have been fitted together. This furniture is full of character, wonderfully imperfect and lovable. The conservation of resources is in appreciation of our shared world. Here too, it‘s a good idea to freshen the surface from time to time with our Wax Spray care product.

A WELLNESS HOLIDAY FOR YOUR WOOD FURNITURE Your furniture will love you for it. To make sure that your favourite pieces will give you many years of pleasure, we have put together some tips and tricks on furniture care for you: Furniture care oil: care for oiled wood surfaces Wood care Wax Spray: care for waxed surfaces Furniture cure Spray: cleaning and care for plastics and painted surfaces Teak oil: refreshes your garden furniture Leather care set: cleaning and protection for all smooth leathers

Waxed furniture can be wiped with a moist cloth and then treated with a wax care product. After the wax has dried the surface can then be buffed with a lint-free cloth. Oiled wood surfaces can be cleaned with a soft cloth moistened with clean water or a plant-based soap. Any surfaces which are heavily used should regularly be rubbed with care oil and then polished after about five minutes with a lintfree cloth. Stubborn dirt can be carefully removed with 280-grain sandpaper and re-oiled

Remember always to test the care product in a place which is not immediately visible and always use the same type of polish. If oil based and wax based polishes are used alternately, this can leave your furniture dull and with stripes on the surface.

ACCESSORIES // VASES

WHAT FLOWERS LOVE This is a moment that everybody knows: good friends come to visit and bring a wonderful bouquet of flowers… and then the search for the right vase begins.

94

WWW.KARE-DESIGN.COM // LIFE IS STYLE 2018


TIPS ON MATERIALS Ceramic vases: In addition to transparent and coloured glass, ceramics are among the most frequently used materials for all types of vase. At the moment there‘s a strong trend towards rough, porous and structured ceramics in earth tones, which are a great match for all natural furnishing styles. Ceramic materials, their basic substances and production processes are so diverse that the terminology involved is often mixed up. The notes below may help a little. Stoneware: this is pottery made from clay, quartz and feldspar - minerals which are smelted together during firing in the oven. Containers and crockery made of stoneware remain slightly porous, which means that they aren‘t entirely watertight, and for this reason ceramics made of stoneware are often covered with a glaze

Earthenware: earthenware consists of the same minerals, but is fired at higher temperatures and is therefore normally watertight even without a glaze. Porcelain: porcelain is also a ceramic product, and comes in countless variants. Consisting of kaolin, feldspar and quartz, it is fired at high temperatures together with other materials, and in proportions which are normally kept secret. The result is a finer and denser structure, which means that porcelain containers are watertight.

THREE SHAPES MAKE UP THE BASICS A slim, tall vase with a small opening for 1 to 3 attractive flowers and twigs, for example for poppies, roses or dragon‘s claw willow. A bulbous vase with a medium-sized opening – this is ideal for compact, tied bouquets like the kind we get on birthdays or a demonstration of affection on Valentine‘s Day, or even an autumn arrangement in golden colours. We need a vase with a large opening for loose bouquets containing 20 colourful tulips from the farmers‘ market in springtime, or a sea of dahlias you‘ve picked yourself in late summer.

FASCINATING: Containers have been produced for thousands of years by firing materials such as loam and clay. This means that a ceramic vase will add a touch of traditional craftsmanship to your home. By the way, our vases are for the most part handcrafted and you will therefore be the proud owner of a unique, highly individual piece..

THE STORY BEHIND: SUNLIGHT

98

WWW.KARE-DESIGN.COM // LIFE IS STYLE 2018


WHERE DO THE RAYS OF THE ”SUNLIGHT” MIRROR COME FROM? This decorative jewel comes from India and each mirror is unique. We have them handcrafted from recycled wood in traditional workshops in Rajasthan. The wooden sections of the frame reflect the original shape of the rolling pins with which the dough for chapatis, India‘s traditional flatbread, was rolled out.

This centuries-old utensil is increasingly disappearing from the country‘s modern kitchens. As a result our ”Sunlight“ is not just a decorative highlight for every room in which it appears, but also pays homage to tradition and manual craftsmanship.

EACH ONE IS UNIQUE

KARE INSIDE

AROUND THE WORLD IN 100 SHOPS

Peter Schönhofen, KARE founder & CEO and Andy Pietrasch, Manager of KARE Vienna

With more than 100 shops worldwide KARE today represents unconventional furnishing design – always surprising and highly individual. Back in 1981 Jürgen Reiter and Peter Schönhofen, two students who found the furnishing of their time completely lacking in rock ‚n‘ roll, founded their first shop in Munich. Today KARE represents unique furnishing ideas in an infinite variety of styles in more than 40 different countries – never boring and always full of inspiration. KARErs from all around the world share this inspiration with us and present their personal favourites.

WILLKOMMEN IN WIEN!

CIAO, BELLA ROMA!

Andy Pietrasch gives us his furnishing tip: ”A light furnishing style with clean lines and few colours is flexible and timeless. However, this look does not receive its individual touch until it iscombined with a personal object or an antique. For example, you can combine your modern Italian designer sofa with a playful candelabra. Opposites generate excitement!“ Andy Pietrasch, KARE Vienna, Austria

We meet Andrea Fabrizi from KARE Rome: ”Yes, it‘s true! People here simply have style, and they love vintage!“, explains Andrea as he proudly takes us on a tour of his shop, adding:“ I like to add new life to this style with modern designer pieces. The result is an exciting fresh look.“ Andrea Fabrizi, KARE Rome, Italy

How do people live in Morocco? ”This is as varied has anywhere else on earth. Often the entire extended family lives under the same roof, because family solidarity is very strong here. We have modern furnishing, and the traditional tile work, golden fittings and oriental arches tend to be found in tourist sights or very traditional houses. We love modern high gloss furniture and like to have lots of colour around us.“ Jihad Elyouns, KARE Casablanca, Morocco

A country so diverse, rich in species and devoted to nature like no other. Miguel proudly presents his KARE store and at the same time his personal highlight – the coffee table. For him it‘s much more than somewhere you can rest your feet or place your keys – it‘s the central point of the entire apartment. ”You have to select the perfect size – after all, even in a small apartment you want to have enough space to move around in.“ Miguel Angel Garcia, KARE Quito, Ecuador

How do people live in Bolivia? ”Decoration is essential to our lives - we love decorating and using little details to suddenly change the effect a room makes. Every piece of furniture receives much more charm when it‘s combined with accessories such as a picture, a vase or a lamp. A touch of elegance enhances any room and natural materials like wood add a feeling of cosiness and warmth.“ Moira Elgueta Edwards, KARE Santa Cruz, Bolivia
