About:
Christoph Wimmer-Ruelland’s projects reflect his approach of work: to research, experiment and rethink the materials, functions and conventional forms of objects; taking them out of their "comfort zone". The results are objects and products that combine functionality and aesthetics, while celebrating the beauty of details.
