PROTOTYPE FURNITURE COLLECTION BY FRIEDER BOHAUMILITZKY
Frieder Bohaumilitzky's has designed the collection of prototype furniture for Germany's Bundeswehr armed forces. The War for Talents range features a day bed, circular drip tray for boots, and a valet stand – designed after a director from the defence ministry expressed a wish for somewhere to hang his crumpled jacket. Bohaumilitzky created the prototype furniture based on a workshop with soldiers, defence officials and consultants. The aim was to create an attractive redesign of the army's living areas and workspaces. Bohaumilitzky based elements of his collection on the army's previous furniture design, maintaining the characteristic colors of green, blue, orange and the use of beech wood as the main material but updating pieces with new shapes.
