Good design should be self-evident – this is the creative starting point for Apartment 8 and the guiding principle that Carolin Sangha has made her own. As Creative Director, she supplies corporate design, creative consulting and product design services from her Munich agency casa 57, with the emphasis on fashion and interiors. As a child, Carolin Sangha lived for some years in India – a country with an abundance of culture and colour that soon stimulated her creative talent. After studying graphic arts and fashion design, she worked as a fashion editor, freelance stylist, designer and art director for fashion magazines, advertising agencies and other companies. Her agency is responsible for the build-up and development of leading international brands, and she creates CI concepts and collections for major fashion and lifestyle companies. The products she has developed for Schönbuch under the Apartment 8 name can be regarded as a steadily growing collection of purist favourites. They include the DOTS and DOTS STONE coat hooks, the LINE range, coat hanger 0112., BLOSSOM, BEAUTY, SWING, SHOEBOX, LOAFER, the NINI stool, CUSHION SQUARE, CUSHION RECTANGLE and CUSHION FLAT, COLOUR DOLLS, TRAY, TRAY LITTLE and TRAY ADAPT, the VIEW mirror and TALLY, the coloured boxes.
