Michael Raasch

While studying at Germany's Offenbach Academy of Art and Design, Michael Raasch focused strongly on designing luminaires, furniture and accessories, and even back then well-known manufacturers started putting his designs into production.

Since that time, he has received international design awards, and his works are featured in the Permanent Collection of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.

He describes his collection as being "characterised by a reduction to the essentials, a clear design idiom and high-grade materials". He says: "As our products are made exclusively in Germany, we are able to guarantee their high quality and outstanding manufacturing that is as sparing on resources as possible."
