ABOUT

SARAH & HENRIK BÖTTGER

Studio Böttger was established by Sarah and her brother Henrik Böttger. In their german based studio they create products, objects and furniture in collaboration with international companies. They also realise experimental projects ranging from craftsmanship to art and profit from a wide range of disciplines. Strongly influenced by their craft and art background, they developed a pronounced feel for materials. Both value traditional and cutting-edge processing methods such as analog and digital tools. During the design process they attach particular importance to details with an eye on new usages and look at everyday situations. Their products being first and foremost clear, precise and unobtrusive.

Sarah Böttger was trained in carpentry before she graduated 2010 in product design at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design) and the University of Art and Design Helsinki. For several years, she has run the studio by herself and worked in parallel for an international platform on design and project concept assignments. Henrik Böttger is a graduate designer and has been working for more than a decade as a designer and artist. Having both grown up with the artistic output of their father, creative work is a long standing family tradition. Though working independently in an interconnected field of design they already shared their knowledge for several years. With the decision to establish their collective studio both benefit from their background, complementary knowledge, skills, and distinct personalities.
