They ground or give wings to purely functional aspects. Both aspects are found in the Design in Dorf created product ideas – sometimes more, sometimes less developed”.

Ulrichadolf Namislow prefers wood as material for his work. The designer is fascinated by the nature and therewith of the vivacity of the material. Colours and tones reach from slight maple to ebony black. Thereby the vivid, organic fine structure of the wood makes up his nearly unbeatable attraction. Technical wood and multiplex have an exceptionally individual aesthetics. That is how succeeded provocations emerge, making the characteristic of the designs by Ulrichadolf Namislow.
