Philipp Hainke is a product designer that combines an artistic background with technical solutions. For him design goes way beyond the shape of an object. Design is the meeting point of social, technical and sustainable questions and by this a key element in our globalized world.
He has a strong focus in ecological design that includes technical innovations in its process, also knowing that they can never solve the problem by itself.
For him designing means to be involved in a continual process of observation and reflection to generate purposeful objects. He believes that the Objects we are surrounded by, become part of our society and can have the power to effect it back.
He spent his childhood and youth on the countryside in Bavaryia afte which he travled europ and lived on a biodynamic farm for a year. He attended an art school for two years, before his design studies. The beginnig of his design education was at the technical University of Applied Since Coburg in south germany which gave him the basic knowledge of technichal mechanics, Ergonomie and problemsolving from bottom up. Then he moved to Poland to study for one year in the art and design context of the Academy of the Arts Gdansk. After that he moved to Berlin where he graduated in 2018 at the University of the Arts Berlin.
Currently he works on his master thesis where he continues with his research in the field of new sustainable processes and materials at the University of the Arts Berlin.
