Pamono founder Oliver Weyergraf’s collectable design picks

Oliver’s Wish List

Our very own Oliver Weyergraf, CEO and co-founder of Pamono, is all business at the office, where he works to keep our passion project growing. But in his rare spare time, he knows how to relax and enjoy the good life. He spends his vacations sailing the Mediterranean or hiking the Alps. He’s an avid food and wine enthusiast—definitely ask him for restaurant tips when you visit Berlin. And he’s furnished his Charlottenburg home with a lovely mix of fine art and chic vintage and contemporary designs from Pamono.

A collector at heart yet ever modest, Oliver never goes for anything too flashy. But if you’re paying attention, you’ll notice he has a gift for picking out timelessly functional, quietly sophisticated, and historically significant pieces. While we were asking some of our favorite tastemakers to share their holiday wish lists, we invited Oliver to join in on the fun. Here’s what our design-loving captain is eyeing this season…


Akoya Tischlampe by Johannes Hemann (2017)

“I support upcoming German designers whenever I can, and this lamp by Hesse-based Johannes Hemann is such an attractive, inspiring conversation piece.”

Open Back Lounge Chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin (1970s)

“The work of Milo Baughman looks like a great investment right now, and this set has been beautifully restored.”

Maclamp by Terrence Conran for Habitat (1960s)

“What a classic of functionalism! I'm drawn to the honest, straightforward look of wood and steel.”

Gradient Mirror by Phillip Jividen (2015)

“The blue ombré effect of this mirror reminds me of the sea—one of my favorite places to be.”

Glass Vase by Arthur Percy for Gullaskruf (1950s)

“The perfectly pure forms of midcentury Scandinavian glass stop me in my tracks every time.”

Yuno Glassware by Chmara.Rosinke for Krosno (2017)

This new collection of glassware from young Austrian studio Chmara.Rosinke is on my list because it’s minimalist but also playful. I would really enjoy toasting friends and family with these.”

Halle-Form Vase by Marguerite Friedlaender for KPM (1930s)

“I’ve recently had the chance to tour the KPM headquarters here in Berlin and fell in love with the company’s legacy of craftsmanship. I would like to start a little KPM collection, and this piece would make a great start. It was designed by Bauhaus-trained artist Marguerite Friedlaender-Wildenhain, so it doubles up on my love of German design history.”
