Since graduating from the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich in 2001, the German duo Claudia Kleine (1974) and Jörg Kurschner (1969) specialized in product design and interior architecture.

Their practice is centred on the user’s relationship to the space. They develop functional, visually attractive furniture concepts for well-known German and international brands, through in-depth research, innovation and experimentation with materials from their own ‘Modelbauwerkstatt’. ‘With each new assignment, we formulate new constructive and technical solutions, step by step.’
