Cover Designer of DESIGN CONVERGE
Born in Western Austria Christian Kroepfl studied architecture and urban planning in Vienna and Paris. In his design work the questions about functionality and quality as well as the use of natural and sustainable materials are in the centre of the development process.
It’s all about the clarity of design and the deliberate restraint to the essential which averts superficial attention: modest, sophisticated and sometimes calm in nature, these pieces of furniture make a point that great design does not tolerate hierarchies or compromise in the interaction of form and function. Sometimes just the simple idea of a truss, and its expression through elegant design is the distinguishing feature of one of these jewels for your home or office. Modern design, in particular combinations of steel and solid wood, resolves into timeless and aesthetic furniture that beautifies our everyday life.
His work has been exhibited all over the world, has been acquired by various design collections, and was honoured with more than 40 international design awards (e.g. Red Dot Design Award, International Design Award, German Design Award, Good Design Award, European Product Design Award). He currently practices as an Architect and Designer in Vienna and Hohenems (Vorarlberg).
