Joachim Manz


The 1957 born artist Joachim Manz is mainly known for his sculptures and wall workings for the public area. The concrete lamp "Trabant" received 2008 the ifdesign-award.

The designer intends to avoid mechanical compacting of the concrete. The concrete is cast and pacted by habd, so that the sperical surface is randomly riddled with blow holes and air bubbles. The different, creative, metod for the production of the surface of the individual concrete items makes every specimen a unique product.
