Martha Schwindling (Germany, 1988) studied product design at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design. Before graduating in 2014 she interned with Stefan Diez, worked freelance as a designer for Bureau Kilian Schindler and spent one semester in the Visual and Critical Studies department of the School of Visual Arts, New York. In 2011, while still studying, she established her own practice and has since worked on furniture, products, interiors and concepts for various clients as well as on independent ventures. Schwindling’s projects are rooted in the common and everyday: she looks closely at the objects surrounding us, and tries to improve them, aiming towards self- evidence of concept, construction and use. The rationality and the character of an object are equally important to her. She lives and works in Berlin.
