1. Info




I believe that design should not be defined over its borders, but in itself be a transdisciplinary approach to improve and challenge contemporary issues.
Through design I want to strip away the artifice from the object; it should be a statement without falsification.
What always stays is a big love and fascination for material which is the driving force behind all my work.


CV:
In 2015 I graduated from the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd with a bachelor degree in product design, a great school to learn about the fundamentals and functionality of design. Feeling that I wanted to explore design through a different lense I applied for the social design master at the DAE. After graduation in 2017 I founded Studio Basse Stittgen to experiment, investigate and explore.
Since then I’ve hosted workshops about materials at universities and artspaces such as the RISD, MU-artspace, the VCA Melbourne and the DAE where I’ve also been working with the social design master students on a course about bio design.
