The Fundamental Group is a design and architectural firm based in Berlin, Germany founded by trained architects Steve Molloy and Gunnar Rönsch. Steve and Gunnar believe that furniture transcends the physical world and has the power to engage the heart and mind through playful wonder. As such, the pair have been designing and manufacturing mathematically inspired solid wood furniture in Berlin since 2011.
Each piece of furniture produced by The Fundamental group is designed following geometric logic that is often repeated ad absurdum. The intricate designs repeat shapes and patterns to produce products with unique, hand-crafted textures. The Fundamental Group strongly believe in the importance of creating durable, long-lasting products in a world which is moving at such a fast pace. As such, a huge emphasis is placed on sustainability; all wood is responsibly sourced in Europe and wherever possible renewable materials without chemical additives are used.
The Fundamental Group’s designs focus on working closely with each specific material, taking into account how it may age, weather or wear over time. Products are primarily made in the EU and always under fair working conditions.
