The essence of Bernotat&Co's work is to ponder the poetry of normalcy; to tease the rules and discover exceptions; to heighten the contrast between the mundane and surprising. Within these vagaries of perception, the final result will ultimately become an inspiring and practical product.
Anke Bernotat's challenge is to recombine old, forgotten solutions with nowadays needs to create surprising and useful objects. Aspects of everyday
life - whether they be story-telling, science and technology or nature - can be found in her work.
These manifest themselves in products for her design categories of living, working and public space.
