The studios projects varying from one-off commissions to limited editions and unlimited production ranges. All products are manufactured in Germany. Honest objects made with care.
Inspiration can be hidden in all things of life. A sentence or even a single word, a glint of color, a texture, a tone of light. It’s about the meaning of a moment, the way of how to take notice of something. A curious mind, an exploring attitude towards life and a cautious behaviour in the way you treat your surroundings.
