Born in 1974 in Ried / Innkreis, Austria, it was after completing his high school studies that he decided to take his flair for craft and creative streak to the next level, completing five years‘ training in interior and furniture design at the prestigious HTBLA (federal higher technical institute) Hallstatt. His carpentry training also enabled him to‚perfect‘ his feel for shapes and materials and the processing of these. After working as a project manager and planner in an architect‘s office, he joined TEAM 7 where his first responsibility was the planning and styling of dealer studios and regional trade fairs. Then in 2008 he was given overall responsibility for TEAM 7‘s underlying architectural brand image at the main trade fairs in Cologne, Vienna and Milan, in addition to his work as a designer. As Head of Interior Design Desch is - apart from his role as a designer - responsible for Creative Direction at international fairs and photo shoots. It is his passion for harmonious proportions and his keen eye for detail which ensure that TEAM 7, as a pioneer of ecologically produced designer furniture made from natural wood, has such a strong trademark style.
