Johannes Hemann, storm

The Storm Series is by its concept the purest example of a process-design, where the designer seeks to set creative parameters to allow an object to shape itself without any further direct involvement. The aim of this project is to create forms through storm winds. Johannes Hemann create storm rooms, boxes in which he release storms by feeding high pressure air .
The storm and the course of events in a storm are the base of the project: 'the silence before the storm' – the material lies on the bottom of the box – 'standstill' – the air comes in, the storm begins and the energy is transferred from the wind to the material - 'the wind stops' - the form has been shaped and the silence after the storm sets in.
The storm energy is afterwards visible in the shape. Read more

About Johannes Hemann

Johannes Hemann studied product design at the School of Art and Design in Offenbach am Main, Germany. During his studies he spent one semester at the Department of Product Design at Kingston University in London. In 2011 Hemann opened his eponymous design studio and almost immediately received international attention for his innovative and playful interpretations of traditional design forms.
His acclaimed “Storm Series” represents another unique approach toward design, in which furniture is made in a “storm box” and shapes are created as a result of simulated storms.
Hemann’s designs have been exhibited in Berlin, Milan, Tel Aviv, London, Basel, New York and Tokyo, among other venues. In 2012 he was nominated as Young Designer of the year by the German Design Awards, and he was twice nominated for Design Newcomer of the Year in Germany, in both 2010 and 2011.
