Valentin Loellmann

German, 1983
It's entirely natural for me to build something out of nothing. I never sketch. Early on in my life I learned how to capture certain situations and moments, a specific atmosphere or feeling in my thoughts, detail it further in my mind by putting myself right into it. Watching rooms and spaces filled with people and imaging the different interactions amongst the environment and humans living within.”
Valentin Loellmann was born in 1983 in rural southern Germany into a family of artists, and studied product design at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts. Shortly after graduation in 2010, he founded his Maastricht atelier with the support of Galerie Gosserez, who early on had recognized his unique talent. His work has been exhibited at Art Basel, Collective New York, PAD Paris, PAD Germany and PAD London, where he was awarded “Best Contemporary Design” in 2013 for his Spring/Summer Console and again in 2017 for his Copper Corner Bench. Valentin Loellmann is deeply sensitive to and inspired by his environment; he conceptualizes his pieces as inspired by and inhabiting their surroundings. His creative process, he says, is rhizomatic, emanating from an unstructured point and meandering in a self-determined fashion to develop into a form that is constantly evolving. In turn, the finished piece gives birth to the next direction for his art. He prefers not to categorize his creations as furniture or sculpture, but as existing in a space somewhere in between.
