The mind behind KUR!O – Von Morgen
Von Morgen is a German furniture & interior design studio led by Markus Hofko, based in Augsburg. Hofko is known as a designer, artist as well as a filmmaker, illustrator, and publicist. After being a supporter of surrealism for many years, he found his new infatuation in minimalism and its universal design language.
Von Morgen’s focus of attention is laid on technical and visual perfection. Accordingly, the result is a tasteful design that adds a modern touch to any interior.
Materials & Techniques – Wood fiber compound and powder-coated metal
The baseboards are made from high-density wood fiber compound which is completely dyed-through, moisture resistant, and non-toxic. They are available in various colors such as black, ocher, chocolate, red, blue and grey.
The hanging modules – panels and sticks – are made of powder-coated steel and can withstand a substantial amount of weight. The modules are available in a specter of more vibrant colors, such as black, blue, turquoise, yellow, light red, and white.
Style & Aesthetics – Timeless, minimalistic design
KUR!O is a shelving system that offers its users a literal plug’n’play approach to furniture assembly. There are endless possibilities of combination and module extensions, enabling the creation of personal shelving layouts. The panels can be placed in any order and tucked together vertically and horizontally.
The minimalistic design can easily adapt to modern home design as much as to its users’ needs.
KUR!O is an everchanging, long-lasting shelving system
This system is easy to install and does not require any additional tools, therefore it’s responsive to instant changes and new arrangements. Its minimal yet interactive design allows KUR!O to blend in any room found in your home.
