3 questions to: Nina Ruthe-Klein (NIRUK)

The design studio NIRUK finds balance between experiments, aesthetics and different materials. Their latest “made by NIRUK” products offered in their online shop are made in collaboration with designer David Antonin and can be characterised as “sociable and cozy”: The mobile baby’s high chair “LirumLarum” for outdoor areas and the “StammTisch” that turns a tree or a lantern into a bar table. Nina Ruthe-Klein is the founder of NIRUK and answered a few questions for us.

“LirumLarum” and “StammTisch” are products for mobile people who spend a lot of time outside. Are you planning on specialising your products for the garden- and outdoor-sector?

We are manufacturing products for the everyday use, indoor and outdoor alike. Of course it’s great when they work in both environments and can be used by people who are very flexible. We had the idea for “StammTisch” in spring because this is the time when I get my workshop outside and start new projects. I love to “live outside”. It’s great to work surrounded by fresh air and natural light, a perfect contrast to the work in the office. Especially now after the winter months I am looking forward to it.

What are you working on right now?

There are many projects at the same time right now – and they all are very exciting! My personal theme for the products I am developing now is ‘picnic’. We had lots of inspirations last year and many ideas for new products evolved. We are now discussing what prototypes we’re going to build next.

Do you plan have any other way of distribution besides your website?

Because of the last presentations we did we had many requests and we will expand our distribution channels, but it is too early to talk about it in detail. Right now you can buy our products at our online-shop.
