Studio Besau-Marguerre is an interdisciplinary design studio in the heart of Hamburg that uses a holistic design approach in its work across the fields of product design, visual communication, styling and interior design. Founded in 2011 by Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau, the studio’s team now comprises interior architects, textile designers, graphic designers and product designers who work together to realise exciting projects ranging from trade fair concepts to larger-scale undertakings like furnishing Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie concert hall. With a keen eye for bold colours, experimental forms and unusual materials, coupled with strong attention to detail, Studio Besau-Marguerre designs unique concepts that, thanks to the team’s multifaceted expertise, allow holistic brand consulting and coordinated concept implementation to originate from a single source. The creative work on each individual project always begins with the product itself, with the interior being taken into consideration in the design from the start and the overall perception of the product being the ultimate objective. Making prototypes by hand is just as much a part of the process as the use of digital design tools.
As recipients of the Interior Innovation Award in 2015, the Karl Schneider Award in 2016, the AIT INsider Award in 2017 and the ICONIC AWARD in 2018, Studio Besau-Marguerre’s client portfolio includes well-known companies such as Vitra, Artek, Thonet, E15 and Fürstenberg.
