3 QUESTIONS FOR RALF HÜLLEMANN,
COMPANY FOUNDER AND VISIONARY
How would you describe sophisticated living?
Individual, authentic, creative and … vibrant!
What’s the connection between surfing and furniture?
In surfing, you have to focus on the wave, stay in the moment and become one with sea and its motions. No wave is like any other; you can’t stop to think, but have to respond instinctively to the water’s movement. It takes tremendous creativity to constantly change perspectives and shift your point of view. Every person is different and so we have constantly reinvent ourselves in this regard, too.
Your favorite sofa and why?
Solid Wave – for me, it embodies freedom, personality and change.
