How did you 3 come together?
Hanna and Michl studied together in Rosenheim. There, they had the first ideas of designing and building special furniture. It took 3 years of development of our ideas and thoughts to get to the point where MINUUK is now. Amelie is Hannas sister and at some point she just fitted in with her good choices of design and her skills.
And how did you get the idea of creating your own company?
We needed a tool to get our ideas out of our minds. We wanted to do our own stuff, in exact accordance with our instructions and view to certain things. So we had a free hand to the design, to the implementation and to the sustainability of products.
Is there a special meaning for MINUUK?
No, there’s no meaning behind. We just liked the sound and look of MINUUK.
What is the main idea behind MINUUK?
We want to build sustainable furniture for the young people. With a fresh design, that stays for years. The products are with no compromise in the case of sustainability also in the whole process behind them. We hope that our products make fun and happy for years. The customer, the environment and us.
How would you describe MINUUK in 3 words?
Sustainable, timeless, wooden.
Which of your products you don’t want to miss in your own home?
Definitely GERO. He is a clothing rack and the best furniture when you have an issue with clothes bunches (laughing).
Thanks to you three for this insight and the possibility to get a closer look at the MINUUK. This was a great pleasure to learn more about you and your label.
We wish you all the best for your future plans and projects.
