About the Studio

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

I studied product design with the minor subjects communication design, art research and media art at HfG Karlsruhe. Before graduating in 2014 I interned with Stefan Diez, was a freelance designer for Bureau Kilian Schindler and spent a 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.


Former assistants: Agnes Kelm, Tanguy Fraiture, Prak Piakot, Marta Pracht, Marie Radke, Emilia Knabe
