Anna Badur works as a freelance designer in Berlin and with her experimental work obscures the boundaries between the fine and the applied arts. She is not bound by genre or material – her repertoire encompasses textiles and ceramics as much as furniture design.
The work of Anna Baldur, who studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, can be characterized by an experimental approach and an acute sensitivity for materials and surfaces. The seemingly contemplative colouring and the calm, minimalistic structures are not in small part influenced by her Nordic coastal heritage. Variations of wind and sea seem ubiquitous in Badur’s aesthetic. The power with which the forces of nature influence human moods is a central element in Badur’s self-concept as a designer. Equally important is the process-driven impact of her creations: the elements and details appear in a constant flux of continual becoming, never as a static existence. Anna Badur has won many distinguished prizes for her work, including the iF Concept Design Award and the We Love Design Award awarded by the Stilwerk. In cooperation with the porcelain maker KAHLA she designed the series “Blue Sunday”, which captures stills of water movement. For her work on this series she was nominated for the German Design Award 2018.
