about

Hello, I am Philipp Hainke. Design for me is a continual process of observation and reflection. I have a strong focus in ecological design but I’m not averse to find technical solutions. I include technical innovations in my work, but I alos think that they can never solve the problem by itselfe. The Objects we are surrounded by, become part of our society and can have the power to effect it back
I grew up on the countryside, between cows, hay bales and the green forest of Southern Germany. This times still affects my work and is the base to my strong bond to nature.
I  attended an art school for two years, before I started to study design. My design education started in the technical University of Applied Since Coburg and I still enjoy the process of finding problems and starting to solve them from the bottom up. I work as an intern at gewerk in 2009 and at vertdesign in 2012 where I could improve my practical skills.
Currently I position myself more close to the fine arts and crafts while researching new sustainable technics and materials at the University of Art Berlin.

I live and work as a freelance designer in Berlin.
