Florian Schmid, born 1984 in Germany, graduated in 2011 from the the Munich University of Applied Sciences. Immediately after, he founded his own studio.
The studio designs projects ranging from furniture to products, textiles and consumer goods. The objects often have a figurative and iconic expression. The design process is led by a strong playful and experimental way, always considering first the material itself and its character.
With his designs, he aims to provoke the consumers' emotion and also improve the surrounding environment. His works were exhibited among others at London's Design Festival, during the BODW in Hong Kong, at the D3 Contest Design Talents in Cologne and at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. He has received several awards, including the IF Award 2012 and was nominated as newcomer for the German Design Award 2013. His works have been acquired by various design collections. In Spring 2014, he was awarded as the "A&W DESIGNTALENT 2013" by the Architektur&Wohnen Magazin.
