The Hannover studio of Axel Nieberg has been specialising in the fields of architecture, interior design, landscaping, lighting design and product design for over 15 years. Axel Nieberg is well known for his minimalistic use of forms and for his extraordinary way of manipulating light in combination with natural materials. The expressiveness of his work is a result of the haptic quality ("expression through touch") of the chosen materials. In line with the Japanese Wabi-sabi doctrine of aesthetics, great value is also placed upon simplicity and on the natural ageing process of the materials, which are increased by the development of a patina. His buildings create a special impression through their unconventional presence, often characterized by massiveness combined with accurately defined openings. Collectively, these openings enhance the exterior view with intriguing sight lines. The characteristics of the individual sites also provide inspiration for the different architectural designs.
