Burkhard Vogtherr / Jonathan Prestwich
Both designers are united by a long-standing collaboration: Born in 1942, between 1972 and his death in 2019 Burkhard Vogtherr ran a product design agency. He worked for prestigious furniture manufacturers the world over, was one of the most famous German furniture designers, and won multiple awards during his career. British-born Jonathan Prestwich worked for the company for six years after completing his studies. Since 2004, he has run his own studio in London but continued a project-based cooperation with Burkhard Vogtherr. Eyla was originally developed in cooperation with the US manufacturer Davis and is now being produced by Girsberger for the European market with particularly sophisticated upholstery.
