“Timeless and shapely lifestyle design made by Philippi”
The Philippi company has had its home in Hamburg for almost 20 years. Jan Philippi and his staff are dedicated to the beautiful things in life in the bright and friendly rooms of the company.
Form follows function here, the material is high quality, there is a love of detail and the principle is for a clear line. The designers bring their ideas into the office, they continue developing them with Jan Philippi and build prototypes until their newest piece is finally launched and lands here in this shop.
Searching for the perfect form
The sophisticated home accessories, travel companions and gift ideas from Hamburg correspond to the style feeling of modern, discriminating people and send a clear message: Good design lives through reducing things to their essentials and the idea of its timelessness. No bells and whistles, no superfluous lines, no chasing after short-lived trends! There are new designs, elegant, purist forms, first-class materials, best functionality.
An interplay with designers and producers to find the perfect form and processing for every single product in his brand: this is what it’s about for company manager Jan Philippi, that is his passion.
A citizen of Hamburg who loves design
As a man of action he tried to improve and embellish the things as even hi-fi furniture can look good he thought... The demand for consumer goods rose in Germany at the end of the 80s and Jan Philippi travelled to many countries for the company where he made contacts with competent companies. However then it was about mass, not class: a trend which Philippi as a fan of quality products didn’t want to join in.
Disappointed by the prevailing taste he found a courageous solution: becoming self-employed.
Two shops and one ideal
