Burkhard Dämmer


Burkhard Dämmer was born in Germany in 1965 and studied industrial design at both the University of FH Darmstadt in Germany and the University of San Jose in California. To Burkhard, the concept of design means finding good answers to new and old problems, by questioning the use, life and vision of a product. With this philosophy in mind, he considers working with veneer and light a special challenge. For Burkhard , LZF’s unique veneer material and lighting philosophy serve as a basis for beautiful designs. His lights for LZF include Cervantes, Cuad, I-Club, Pod and Poppy.
As well as designs for LZF, Burkhard has worked with a range of companies, such as: Adhoc GmbH, Arnold AG, Bankamp GmbH, DO-CE Mueble, Leucos, Modiss Iluminacion, Radeberger Group, Schöck GmbH, Zwilling AG, and others in the fields of lighting, accessories, kitchenware, bathrooms and furniture. He has been awarded many prizes, including the recent German Design Award 2017 for the Dandelion pendant for LZF. Other awards include the Chicago Good Design Award, IF award, the DesignPlus award, the FORM award, ADI Design Index and CDIM award. In addition, Burkhard has been widely published in books and magazines.
