Elisabeth (1981) and Gesine Hillmann (1984) are sisters and designers based in Berlin and Amsterdam. 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 have always loved the free spirit of their own self initiated projects as well as diving deep into design research and education.

With their holistic backgrounds they always strive for the most innovative and user centered solution to create profound value and change for their clients and environment.

Living and working between Berlin and Amsterdam 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.
