Designer Michael Rem is based in Berlin and graduated from the University of Fine Arts Saarbrücken, Germany in 2009. He worked on several projects for renowned design companies before opening his own studio in 2012 and his first collaboration with Gejst in 2017.
Michael says: “Being a designer means absorbing all of the daily influences that life offers endlessly, and consciously experiencing it. All the sounds, colours, forms and events are mixed together in the subconscious with your personality and emotions, so that all of this can be combined to form something new: A new idea which is extracted from the absorbed old and comes back to the surface of the conscious as images of new products. This is what I term the new simple.”
Michael has already won and been nominated for numerous design awards in his career so far. Most notably, he received a German Design Award in 2017 for his Molekyl Candleholder design.
