About me

Philipp Beisheim was born (1985) and raised in Johannesburg (South Africa). At the age of 11 he moved to Würzburg (Germany)
where he later started and finished a training as a cabinet maker. After finishing design studies at the Academy of Crafts and
Design in Würzburg he started an MA course in product design at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (England). After graduating he worked as a product designer in England, Belgium and Germany. He is currently living and working in
Frankfurt am Main (Germany).

Philosophy

His aim is not to try to solve problems, it's much more about creating new situations, that simplifies a discussion by bringing in a
new context. During the design process a number of difficulties will come along, and the challenge is to solve these in a well considered and creative way.

An object needs to be designed to mean something to those who use it, so that the owner or user can develop a special bond
with it over the years, placed into a contemporary context. The Outcome is frequently experimental in its use of materials and
often inspired by pure need and relies more on invention and reduction than on the refinement of previous styles.
