About Eckhard Beger : Eckhard Beger, born in Geneva, Switzerland, designs contemporary art furniture. His works have been the recipients of renowned international design awards and were exhibited at Museo Poldi Pezzoli in Milan, at Palazzo Michiel during Venice Design in the context of the Architecture and Art Biennials, at PAD and at Artgeneve. Beger’s approach is multi-faceted, blending creativity with structure into geometric and organic shapes. His aesthetic identity is influenced by his European cultural heritage and his passion for foreign cultures, especially in Asia. Eckhard Beger founded ArteNemus for the design, realization and distribution of his creations. He holds an engineering diploma from ETH Zurich and an MBA from INSEAD Fontainebleau.
STATEMENT OF ART:
As a furniture designer, I like to blend abstract conceptual ideas with a concrete design project. I search for these abstract concepts and ideas in geometry, mathematics and ornamentations, in different cultures, in modern and postmodern architecture, as well as in the microscopic and macroscopic realms of nature and space. They either serve as inspiration for a creation’s general concept (i.e. designing an armchair based on a slanted cube or a table based on the morphology of an octopus) or for its color combination, texture or finish (i.e. a volcano’s lava stream has an distinctive shape, texture and color combination).

In terms of aesthetics and design language, I draw inspiration from my European cultural heritage as well as from foreign cultures. During the whole design process, I give proportions, curves and shapes particular attention. My final objective is to design an aesthetic and functional creation that produces an emotional or intellectual reaction in the observer.
