“Nils Holger Moormann is like his furniture, his furniture is like him: ascetic, intelligent, humorous and stubborn. Whoever buys it, soon realizes it’s like inviting a wayward child into the home, one whose devotion needs first to be earned. But it will last a lifetime.” Welt am Sonntag

“Raw Desires: Brutalism & Violent Structures” is less an architectural review on brutalism than an attempt to translate a specific feeling, one that captivates so many in our society. The various works here are challenging in their questions. They focus on realities, psychologize urban structures, redefine the given, recontextualize nature and eroticize roughness.
