Tilman Appel at ‘Appel Vintage’, a next door space where he sometimes shows also design classics. He is holding: ‘Hello There’ by Jeremy Harvey from 1978. The chair is made of molded aluminum.
This guy is the owner of the Appel Design Gallery in Berlin. People say that Appel was the first gallery to present contemporary design in Berlin, opened in 2005. Tilman, who studied economics, is in his Thirties. His Grandparents were collectors and are probably one of the reasons why the he decided to become a gallery owner. How nice that life does not always dependent on what we have studied.
