Julian Appelius was born in Munich in 1973 and grew up in France.
After completing a cabinetmaking apprenticeship and studying sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, he moved to Berlin in 1998 and studied industrial and process design at Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), where he completed his diploma in 2003. He founded his firm Studio Julian Appelius immediately afterwards.
Besides designing a wide range of products for renowned manufacturers such as Ingo Maurer, pulpo, freistil by Rolf Benz, Koziol and Konstantin Slawinski, he also collaborates closely with partners, clients and agencies on the interdisciplinary development of concepts, installations, presentations, trade fair booths and events.
