Imagining new structures for human behavior
and developing attractive alternative design to respond to challenging ecological and social issues.
I am passionate about helping doctors, nurses and patients improve health outcomes. It is important that I find a way to contribute my energy in this field.

ONE ROOM FLAT
I love watching chips fly, the smell of fresh wood and quick results.
I like to be a processdesigner who think outside of the industial design box.
helping generate human and ecological well-being. I feel a social, ecological and moral responsibility in my work.
I want to connect with people from different cultures and professions: to learn about their life and work. A designer must develop a deep understanding of who the customer is and how they live. I’m fascinated by human interactions and also classic mechanical principals for products. Keep it simple and smart.
I'm inspired and impressed from these great people:
Sophia Magdalena Scholl
Martin Luther King
"We have enough products. We need new structures for changing our behaviour."
"Design, if it is to be ecologically responsible and socially responsive, must
be revolutionary and radical."
"The Sun still shines."
Sophia Magdalena Scholl
"We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind."
Martin Luther King
Profession and responsibility
study - ecology - social behavior - foundations - art
Profession and vocation, taking responsibility
The following categories show the motivation that can be found in my projects. Design is everything we do. Everyday“and Good design is invisible.“ ...
...are good quotes, that describe my design thinking.
By taking a closer look at structures in terms of production, materials, and human behavior in daily life, recyclingcan be recognized and improved. Projects begin with the study of one`s surroundings.
Because of the limited condition of our natural ressources it is really important to me that commodities are used appropriately and with discretion. I do not support society exhausting those resources. While developing new products it is essential for me to consider the theory of „cradle-to-cradle“ Projects with ecological benefits.
To give people in disadvantaged conditions a better life through products and systems. Making alternatives more attractive. Projects addressing aspects of social behavior.
By taking a closer look at physical and mechanic processes and laws you are able to look at details that can be used in different application fields. Keeping problems abstract is a great conduit for free and unconfined work.
Projects based on foundations.
Projects with an artistic approach.
a good circle
A systematic and methodic approach is a good guideline to me. This gives a golden thread to all of my projects and helps me to think out of the box. Each step and every phase in this process is important. Nevertheless it is a dynamic process in which you are looking back and forth from time to time.
Studying and understanding of problems and systems. Creating concepts trough experiences and knowledge, which then lead to appropriate solutions. Checking functions with models and presenting products or processes confidently and appropriate in the end of the project.
User centricity is in each part of the methodology the most important aspect.
Recognizing a problem or getting an assignment
Getting in touch with the topic
Analysing results of the research and defining an aim
Determination of concepts and thoughts
Realising drafts and solving problems
Presenting results the right way
