Bottcher+Henssler The Berlin-based design duo Bottcher+Henssler was founded in 2007 by Moritz Bottcher and Soren Henssler. They both studied product design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hannover. Since starting, they have been rewarded several awards, including the prestigious red dot: best of the best award. The goal for Bottcher+Henssler is to create simple but original products without unnecessary details where techniques, materials and aesthetics work together in products that break with the trivial. Bottcher+Henssler explain: "Design means everyday culture. It helps us to enjoy and simplify life. We are fascinated by the process that starts with an idea, becomes substance and hopefully results in a long and pleasurable use for its qualities. That's how we understand reasonability and sustainability. Our philosophy is to be as unbiased as possible to solve a complex task that ends in useful, clever and emotional objects."
