About the Studio

I am a product designer running my studio in Berlin since 2014.
My main focus lies on designing functional objects which are self-evident in terms of concept, construction and use.
Other areas of my work include spaces, exhibitions and publications, preferably in collaboration with other designers as well as artists, architects and theorists.

Born in 1988 in Merzig, Germany I studied product design at HfG Karlsruhe. Before graduating in 2014 I interned with Stefan Diez, was a freelance designer for Bureau Kilian Schindler and spent one semester in the Visual and Critical Studies department of the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 2011 I have established my own practice and since then I have been working for various clients as well as on independent ventures.

Current assistant: Marta Pracht
Former assistants: Emilia Knabe, Marie Radke
