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.

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
