Murken Hansen

Intelligent and practical design from Kreuzberg

The design office Murken Hansen was founded in 1999 by Hauke Murken and Sven Hansen. Since then, the office has been located in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. The two designers characterize their products as a symbiosis of simplicity and mechanics.

The technical aspect of the designs ensures that the finished products are intelligent and practical. At the same time, Murken Hansen likes to work with the archetypes of a product, ensuring a certain simplicity and reduction of design.

A typical Murken Hansen design is simple and has unexpected, intelligent features. In order to keep the design as close as possible to the finished product, the two designers first develop true to original models on a scale of 1:1 and monitor both the production process and the cost development.

Murken Hansen's designs have been realised by Menu, Müller Möbelwerkstätten, Troika, Radius Design, Mawa Design, Authentics, Samsung and Nokia, among others.

Many of Murken Hansen's products have been awarded design prizes, including Design Plus, Design Preis Schweiz, IF Design Award, Designzentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, Deutscher Designer Club and the Good Design Award Japan.
