about_max_kimpel
 

Simplicity, functionality and human interaction are true essentials in my work. I have always been fascinated by construction, the process of »making« and the human interaction between users and the outcome of my work. An affinity for material and detail, coupled with an interest in the way new and existing tools can shape and add value to objects, is what guides me in my designs.

Besides a strong commitment to working on my own projects, interests and ideas, I believe in the strength of working in a multi-disciplinary team as this often brings surprising discoveries and unexpected outcomes to a project.
