Hello, I’m Bastian, an interior designer from Berlin with the additive skillset and infrastructure of a wood worker and a strong interest in user-centered and co-creative approaches.
To me, there is no question that design as a discipline can finally leave behind the age of aesthetic sensitivities. As a contemporary designer, it is necessary to set aside my individual preferences as well as current aesthetic tendencies and instead focus on the user of a design. This means considering usability on a functional level, but especially understanding the perspectives, needs and interests of the user to translate them to a physical design.
Involving users in the process of designing objects and spaces not only leads to suitable solutions, but also carries the potential for social achievements like identification, ownership and empowerment. Let's take this as an opportunity to use design not further as a decorative tool, but as a vehicle for social and cultural evolution!
