Farsen | Schöllhammer is a Design Team from Berlin, run by Nina Farsen and Isabel Grupp (previously Schöllhammer). Both graduated from the institute for product and process design at the University of Arts in Berlin in 2007. They realized their diploma project “inVALID” as a team and are now working on various projects in the fields of furniture, tableware, accessories, lighting and packaging design.

Farsen | Schöllhammer's approach to design problems is based on a conceptual and experimental working process. The two designers work on the suspense between norm and deviance trying to develop strategies for an unconventional design. In order to achieve this aim they usually start off working on an abstract theme switching over to play and experiment with mechanisms, materials and physical principles. This often results in unexpected and astonishing solutions.
