She is neither of Swedish nor of English background! Susanne Philippson (*1979) is a young German product and furniture designer who, in 2005, chose Berlin to set up her business after having studied at the Eindhoven Design Academy and Ravensbourne Col
lege in London.
In 2003 she gained work experience at the Design Office of Muji in Tokyo.She has brought projects into production at an early stage of her career, for instance the ‘Compact Desk‘ launched in 2002 with Habitat. Later
that year a conceptual project was taken into the permanent collection of Droog Design.Straight after graduation, through continuous exhibitions at the Salone del Mobile, she acquired clients such as Pallucco. Since then innovative lighting projects such
as the ‚Guardian of Light‘ or ‚Joiin‘ have entered the market.
