(Interior-) Designer

MARKUS HILZINGER (Interior) Designer
"His style reaches out to the world. As a designer, the Berliner from Baden - he designed the elegant "Cosmopolitan" service for Meissen - is one of the best in Germany. Hilzinger's feeling for historical growth comes alive in the "Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg", in the glamorous Seventies flair of the Cologne "Hotel Regent", but also in the colourful retouch of Oka's office classics. ..."
AD Anniversary Edition 06/2019

"As we dedicate this month's 200th edition to the 200 most interesting and influential minds in the world of design, the creative cosmos we outline will rest for a moment on our shoulders in the heart of a style and culture that has probably not existed a second time in the last half century. Karl Lagerfeld.
There is no need to add anything else to the countless obituaries of the last few months - but when it comes to taking the iridescent world of creativity under the magnifying glass, whose work will be an inspiration and a role model beyond the day, the Parisian fashion designer from Hamburg is inevitably at the vanishing point of all perspectives, whose desire to discover and to play never cared about genre boundaries, and who seemed to attract the knowledge and culture of centuries like the gravitational centre of a style universe created especially for him. Hardly anyone came back to the future on his intellectual and visual forays through the epochs as richly laden as Lagerfeld. Nobody had more influence on the aesthetic sensibilities of generations, yesterday and tomorrow, for a long time and for a long time no one will have any more. The real magic, however, lies in the fact that, no matter what chapter of his life story of beauty we intervene in, we find a cleverly woven thread with which we could spin out a new idea that vibrates from all the wealth he had always dug. We dedicate this issue to Karl Lagerfeld, the genius of curiosity."
