ABOUT US

Elisabeth (1981) and Gesine Hillmann (1984) are sisters and designers based in Berlin. Before they decided to start their own studio they both worked in several fields of design.

They feel that the different areas and the varying demands that come along have always enriched one another.

Working for some of the best known international brands and agencies they were able to build up a cross- industry know-how that they combine with their believe in the power of co-creational processes.

They love exploring gestures and habits of different social contexts and backgrounds. This is also where they find inspiration.

Striving to create profound value and change they use contemporary methods and digital technologies as well as tangible tools. It is their aspiration to create subjects that tell long-lasting stories with a wondrous twist.

They have always loved the free spirit of their own self initiated projects as well as diving deep into design research and education.

Living and working in Berlin they gather their teams of professionals according to the needs of the projects.

Currently Gesine also works as an Artistic Associate at  the Product Design department of UdK Berlin. Elisabeth is teaching Product Design at the Berlin International University of Applied Sciences.
