Philipp Hainke is a product designer with a focus on sustainable design and circular economy. During his studies he passed through stations in Germany, Poland, and Australia and graduated at the University of the Arts Berlin, focusing on sustainable product and process design. In a dialogue between technical and ecological material cycles, he is aiming to design resilient systems from which both nature and culture can benefit. His Design unites the intersections of social, technical and ecological issues, making it a key element for innovation and sustainable development. As designers, we have the know-how to formulate ideas and visions to accelerate new developments. For Philipp Hainke, design goes far beyond form and describes the process of being involved in a continuous process of observation and reflection to generate purposeful objects. He sees these objects surrounding us as an active part of our society, with the possibility to influence them. The interaction of man, object, and environment form the basis of his work. His work has been honored with several international awards, including the Green Concept Award, the Materialica Award and the Salone Satellite Award.
