AD Germany celebrates 200 issues of the design magazine with the ABC’s of the 200 most important designers: AD’s Design Influencers of 2019 are the people who are not satisfied with the world that surrounds them and aim to make it more beautiful.
On the month of June the magazine dedicates their 200th edition to the 200 most interesting and influential minds in the world of design and to commemorate, AD Germany pays tribute to one of the most notorious personalities in the world of exquisite design: Karl Lagerfeld.
The name needs no introduction, but when it comes to taking the iridescent world of creativity under the magnifying glass, the Parisian fashion designer inevitably stands out in the world of design. Karl Lagerfeld‘s sense of discovery and playfulness never cared about genre boundaries and seemed to attract the knowledge and culture of centuries like the centre of gravity of a style universe created especially for that time.
Hardly anyone came reinvented themselves again and again as Karl Lagerfeld. No one has had more influence on the aesthetic senses of generations, past and future, and nobody will have them for a long time. The real magic, however, is that no matter which chapter of his life story of beauty we reach into, we find a cleverly crafted thread with which we could spit out a new idea that vibrates with all the wealth he has always had. That is why this publication is dedicated to him, the genius of curiosity.
They shape our time – with their sense of style and their design talent: For the 200th edition, we present AD’s choice for the 200 influencers of the year, who change, expand and enchant our world. 200 brilliant minds behind furniture design and Instagram filters, building and book culture, art and interior. News from old acquaintances and unheard of young savages.
Some of the most notorious names are Dimore Studio, Jaime Hayon, Karl Lagerfeld, India Mahdavi, Oitoemponto, François Pinault, Studio Job, Patricia Urquiola, Charles Zana, among many other extraordinary artists.
Here you can discover the list in its entirety, in no particular order.
