Originally trained as a carpenter, German designer Robin Scholtysik (born 1991) has an eye for construction and a natural curiosity when it comes to almost any raw material, and on top of this, he has that vital passion for experimenting and challenging conventions that makes a great designer. In 2017, Scholtysik fi nalised his studies in design at the Academy of Design in Münster, alongside his master’s in carpentry. During his education, he focused mainly on furniture design and developed his now renowned appetite for experimenting with materials and various manufacturing processes.
Today, the multifaceted work of Robin Scholtysik includes furniture, interior design and brand experience design. A common denominator in everything he touches is an awareness of the interrelationship between craft techniques and industrial production, and his projects are marked by a strong consciousness of how people interact with space, environment and material culture. In his own words, ‘Inspiration comes from life itself – even small observations and human gestures can give impulses for something new’.
The first collaboration between Robin Scholtysik and blomus is the sculptural Oru side table.
