In cooperation with Karen Olze we designed and developed several products for the berlin based company Blumenfisch.
Blumenfisch is part of VIA and VIA assists people with disabilities and people with mental illnesses, supports older people and people in need of care and is active in childcare and youth welfare. In addition to social services, VIA produces handicrafts and artistic products. Blumenfisch develops their creative designs in their in-house Berlin manufactories, from the first draft to the final accent, and only uses local materials for production. They manufacture unique pieces in small production steps, exclusively by hand, and thus guarantee quality and a particularly long service life.
Before starting the design process we stayed several days in the different workshops to understand what people are able to do with their special abilities and what Blumenfisch would be able to produce in their workshops.
