Philipp Hainke is a product designer that combines an artistic background with technical solutions. For him design is the meeting point of social, technical and sustainable questions and by this a key element in our globalized world. As designer, he is involved in a continual process of observation and reflection to generate purposeful objects. He believes that this objects become part of our society and can have the power to effect it back.


Philipp spent his childhood and youth on the countryside in Bavaria after which he traveled Europe and lived on a bio-dynamic farm for a year. He attended an art school for two years, before his design studies. His design education started at the technical University of Applied Since Coburg in south Germany which gave him the basic knowledge of technical mechanics, ergonomic and problem solving from bottom up. Then he moved to Poland to study for one year in the art and design context at the Academy of the Arts Gdansk. From Poland he he moved to Berlin where he graduated in 2018 at the University of the Arts Berlin.
He worked as an intern at the Berlin based design studio gewerk and the Sydney based Studio vert as well as Freelancer for studio aisslinger.
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.
