Berlin designer Hanne Willmann (1987), who obtained her degree in industrial design in 2014 at the University of the Arts in Berlin, has already been honored with this year's "German Design Award – Newcomer Finalist".

In addition to her design work Willmann also lectures in technology and construction at the Bauhaus in Dessau. "I just love to experiment and build models. The final product is often completely defined during this process", says Willmann, who particularly enjoys employing original and unexpected combinations of materials and new production technology. Linoleum is currently one of her favorite natural flooring materials, and in her hands it is reminiscent of the clear lines and aesthetic of Bauhaus.
