Barbara Funck, born1969 in Munich, graduated in product design at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd. During her studies she started to work with neunzig°design.

We put the main emphasis on the fields of :
sanitary ceramics, fittings and accessories, light design, tableware and cooking, furniture design, things that make life better

for companies such as:
Auerhahn (D), Belux (CH), BOFFI (I), elmar flötotto (D), Ideal Standard (EU)), OSRAM (D), WMF (D)
Zumtobel Staff (A)

Our aim is to create individual products for individual people, with all the emotional qualities we love in our friends. Such as humour, intelligence, individuality. We trust in qualities like love, respect and responsibility and the power of beauty.
Our interest is concentrated on the things and behaviour of daily life - in order to animate the daily routine. We are convinced that small pleasures are often what makes us happy. We are inspired by the vision that design helps people to feel and to act better.
We try to concentrate an idea to the essential and to form a personality by accentuating certain qualities.
We search for aesthetics without compromises. The pure and perfect shape based on natural geometry.
Minimalism and simplicity in form combined with perfect function are capital.
In a way the design process is comparable to cooking. Besides the creativity of the cook, the careful choice and harmonization of ingredients are of vital importance. The more perfect and sophisticated the interaction between single features, the more culture is created.
Sometimes calculated disharmony or a surprising contrast is the special spice.
