Stefan Diez

For the industrial designer Stefan Diez the focus is the family, which is why he now works in the back building of his family home in Munich - a space lovingly called the laboratory. Having completed a carpentry apprenticeship and an architecture course he spent a year in India, where he designed furniture and thus perfected his craftsmanship. From 1996 to 2002 Diez studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart and, parallel, was assistant to his great role model Richard Sapper in 1998. After studying, Stefan Diez worked for two years with designer Konstantin Grcic in Munich before starting to create furniture, cutlery and accessories - often together with his jewellery designer wife Saskia. As a furniture designer Stefan Diez has realised designs for brands as diverse as Rosenthal, Authentics, Moroso, Bree & Thonet and is the recipient of several design prizes. With the aid of his small team Stefan Diez realises products which are not just visually beautiful, but also technically optimised: with, for example, his chair Chassis made of ultra-thin sheet steel, he utilised the manufacturing techniques of the automotive industry while his New Order shelving system does not require a single screw.
