Peter Maly

Born in Trutnov, Czechia in 1936, Peter Maly is known for his impressive range of creations: furniture collections, home accessories, carpets, exhibition architecture, photo designs, showrooms and shop concepts. He has worked with companies such as Anta, Behr, Cor, Interlübke, JAB Anstoetz, Ligne Roset, Mauser, Thonet and Tonon. Maly has also designed Ligne Roset stores in New York, Moscow, Berlin and Hamburg, as well as a broad selection of Ligne Roset products. The accomplished designer has over three dozen awards under his belt, including the Interior Design Award (Cologne, 2010), the Bundespreis “Gute Form” Award (1986), the IF Design Award (1997, 1998, 2000) the Red Dot Award (2001, 2004, 2005, 2009), the FX International Design Award (2003) and the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award (14 between 1999 and 2013). Maly studied interior architecture at the Ecole Supérieure Spécialisée, in Detmold, Germany, graduating in 1960. For ten years, he worked as a journalist and interior designer for the German interior design magazine Schöner Wohnen. In 1970, he opened his own design and interior architecture practice, which has grown into one of the most successful design studios in Germany. His designs cover a wide range of products, including contract tables, coffee tables, side tables, dining tables, chairs, stools, sofas, beds, fireplaces and fireplace tools, carpets, pianos, bookcases and various accessories. The Peter Maly 2 bed, a blend of Bauhaus geometry and pared-down functionalism, was specially designed for Ligne Roset. Introduced in the early ’80s, it is still in production. Another beloved Maly piece is the postmodern Zyklus lounge chair from the 1980s. Every part of the chair is a section of a circle, and it can easily be moved by rolling. The chair was made in a selection of different leather colors including white, tan, red, gray, black and various shades of blue.
