VITA

Born in 1986 in Munich, Moritz Putzier moved to the North of Germany in 2007 for his studies at the University of the Arts Bremen. Already gaining freelance experience for different designers during the final years of his studies he founded his own studio in 2014 immediately after graduation. Putzier, as a young designer, can already look back to several distinctions like the Design Plus Award and the first prize of the Pure Talents Contest amongst others.
In 2015 he was selected as one of the Newcomer Finalists 2016 of the prestigious German Design Award.

His work is focused mainly on furniture and lighting as well as user orientated product design developed to solve everyday problems. His products connect reduced shapes with natural materials often showing small technical sophistications. He himself explains his design as something “with a little twist” that prefers not to push its way into the center of attention but rather as a hidden aesthetic that defines itself through a playful attention to detail. Objects that are driven by the desire to be connected to people.

Today, he works in his Studio in the Hanseatic city of Bremen step by step setting up his design profile and always motivated and curious to be immersed in new fields. As well as working in commercially with companies, he also works on self-initiated projects. In 2015 he founded, together with his colleague Pascal Howe, the internet platform ACME SUPPLiES. A site presenting a colourful mix of selected contemporary art and design objects for sale and to connect Designers that they admire under one roof.
