Hello! I am Johannes, a German designer and trained furniture maker now based in London. My expertise includes classic furniture, product design, and conceptual art; the latter gives me the opportunity to venture beyond the realm of traditional problem solving. However, I fundamentally approach art and design from a critical standpoint, to ensure that I add value to all my projects.
I believe in keeping designs minimal and feasible for the purpose that it is built for. When it comes to the depth of the details, I am passionate about refining them to serve a functional and unambiguous purpose. A recent success of this is an award for a wooden bench launched in 2020, which is manufactured locally in Bavaria. Currently I am working on a commission, that involves a nesting chair, bespokely designed to fit a family home with limited dining space.
Stoic philosophy deeply influences the intangible aspects of my work, and it has shaped the way I approach and view my surroundings. This has especially influenced my photography, which I no longer consider to just be a skill I have recently picked up, but it now serves as a lens to transform these stoic exercises from the theoretical into reality.
