André Klauser, United Kingdom (*1972)
In 1999 he worked for Jasper Morrison at his Office for Design in London. During this time he decided to apply for a Post Graduate Course at the Royal College of Art where he graduated in 2002 (MA RCA).
He stayed in London where he set up his own studio in the same year. André Klauser designs products and furniture. For his work he often draws inspiration from the everyday and how we use the things we surround ourselves with.
The exhibition entitled "Ideen sitzen / Ideas that sit well" at Hamburg's Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe invites visitors to peruse chairs, armchairs and sofas. The tour of the museum swiftly morphs into a voyage of discovery through the history of interior design, if not even the history of ideas and cultural history of recent decades.
