OEHRING + LUX
For almost twenty years, objects at the crossroads of sculptural art, architecture and design have been created in the Kreuzberg studio of Frank Oehring and Elisabeth Lux. Away from the noisy, bustling street, in a backyard of an old industrial complex in Oranienstrasse, between Kottbusser Tor and Görlitzer Bahnhof, one discovers a bright, spacious studio in which large-sized coloured wall sculptures and free standing architectural objects come into being.
In 2003 the design studio OEHRING + LUX was founded by Frank Oehring and Elisabeth Lux. Under this name, numerous design objects in limited studio editions and in cooperation with manufacturers such as ANTA, E15 or PASTOE have emerged in recent years. In 2004 the first joint design exhibition "Tables and Lamps" in the Extension Pavilion of Aedes East Gallery in Berlin presented with great success prototypes of ZAC - Lights program, currently produced by ANTA, as well as the first edition object, the table Z for the label E15 and the first studio edition of the table ZENO.
