WG-Gesucht.de, the lifestyle magazine COUCH and the designers of studio dreimann went through the pictures and videos of 27 participants in the past days. We want to thank them for their spontaneous support!
Our jurors sent us a ranking list with their own placing of how they liked the flats. The first place was given to Lena F. despite of big coincidations. Her charming flat mixes ancient & new, flea market and design. Congratulations!
Lena F. and her flatmates are going to ornament their living room with the Muuto-products worth more than 5.000 euros! Amonth the products are the Rest Sofa, a grey stool, aa Around side table and four Fiber Chairs. Find the prizes.
Free translation: "The flat combines different elements and colours skilfully. Special individual items are placed centrally – I like the dark desk and the turquoise sofa the most – they add a special character to the room, which is typical for a shared flat. The rooms look spacious and comfortable at a time and they spread the perfect mix of individual taste and a good eye for design."Julia Müller of WG-Gesucht.de
Lena F. is closely followed by the shared flat of Katrin L. who participated with a video for her flat with 7 inhabitants – offering a glimpse into the “most ugly house” of their district, which they are renovating since 12 months by and by. The house is able to take another step now with the prizes of the second place. The flat will get 3 packages for an individual working place: the electric height adjustable Works desk by String, the ergonomic MedaPal office chair by Vitra and a Storage Toolbox from Vitra as well.
Free translation: "While we were watching the video we had the chance to enter every room and we felt welcomed. We were looking for a flat and not for a room. We liked how the community respects the structure of the house and how each member integrated the different ideas into the furniture and pieces to be remembered in the rooms. Nothing looks finished and the pictures of the rooms aren’t exchangeable, which is the reason why it is a unique, exciting object. The bathtub and the comfortably furnished, big living room with a showcase are our special highlights. We would move into that house definitely."Jonas Ette from Studio Dreimann
The third winner is the shared flat of Anna S. The colourful „chosen family“ of four adults, a child, two cats and a dog will get some stylish products for the kitchen. Devices of the Bistro Collection by Bodum, an Artisan blender by KitchenAid and a 400 euros voucher by Stelton for the Rig-Tig by Stelton-assortment.
Free translation: "The flat from Anna S. tells a very own story with the favourite pieces. Thousands of pretty small individual pieces come together becoming a harmonic retro room."Janina Krinke COUCH magazine
