The design office Murken Hansen was founded in Berlin by Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen. We work for german and international clients as: Casala, Cor, Freifrau, KFF, Menu, Philippi, Pieperconcept, Qdo Denmark, Radius Design, Stelton, WMF ...
Murken Hansen design is award-winning:
German Design Award, Design Plus, IF Hannover, Best of German Interior Design.
We did lectures for different universities : UDK Berlin, Burg Giebichenstein Halle, Hochschule Dessau, Bauhaus Universität Weimar, Berlin International.
Our design aim is to make things better. We like: clarity, simplicity, intelligence, traditions, idea ping-pong, german functionalism, working on ideas for a long time, knowledge that is not hardened to certainty, people that make things happen. We think people should own less but better things and so we try to create products with an outstanding usability, top quality and simple beauty.
Our formal concept is mostly soft minimalism. So our products are staying up to date for many years. This is our contribution to sustainability.
In the design process we use all means from paper and cardboard mock-ups to high end model making in 1 : 1 to 3-D print outs. We work with the newest 3-D software so we are compatible with the product developers and engineers. We are a small but fast working company with a highly motivated team.
We are working for small family businesses as well as for big companies. We think there is no contradiction to work at the same time local and global as we see different qualities in the different cooperations. In the end we always strive to find a suitable and workable concept for each client to create extraordinary products.
