A class reunion of sorts
Mark Braun (born 1975) has run his own design studio in Berlin since 2006. He completed his industrial design studies at the FHP University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in 2006, and later continued studying at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and the University of Art and Design in Halle. The portfolio of this young designer includes projects for many companies, for example Authentics, J+L Lobmeyr, Pillips de Pury and Wallpaper.
Braun's products have been honoured with various awards, including the Design Plus Award for his tableware set JOIN and the Interior Innovation Award for his light series LINGOR. Explaining his strategy, Braun says: "I want to design things so that they seem familiar to people, even though they are new."
