In Heaven

The IN HEAVEN from the Zeitraum Collection creates an optical illusion and defines a space within a space. Available in cherry, walnut, or oak, the Birgit Gämmerler design celebrates the wood while setting the bed apart from the room as its own reduced, private and personal enclave. Light, lavish, and palatial, this is one of our favourite beds.

Design Story

Birgit Gämmerler

Birgit Gämmerler

Birgit Gämmerler is the founder and CEO of the company Zeitraum. She was inspired to found the company as a young industrial designer who was simply tired of making things in plastic. “All the consumer stuff I did was plastic-based, and I was so bored with it,” she says. “I wanted a new challenge. But there weren’t many alternatives 25 years ago. So I teamed up with another designer, Rolf Huber, and we began offering oiled wooden pieces, and that was it – something really new for the market then.”

In design terms, Zeitraum’s success has always relied on what Gämmerler calls “double happiness”: the union of ecologically acceptable materials and techniques with beauty, simplicity and sensuous tactility. She notes, “We wanted to achieve a similarly clean and functional aesthetic with good proportions and a coherent structure. It was important to us that our pieces should be beautiful, functional, and able to last a lifetime. Our furniture should be repairable, and it should get more beautiful as it ages. Wood has that quality – it acquires a patina.”

Gämmerler notes, “As a woman, I find it important to observe and study society and find answers to modern needs. What makes sense in our world? It’s a significant question. As designers, we should develop only products that make sense.”

AVENUE ROAD carries a curated assortment of Birgit Gämmerler pieces.
