Victor Vetterlein

Victor Vetterlein was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1957 and studied construction management and sculpture at Colorado State University before switching to Seattle to study at the University of Washington, where he graduated with distinction. Moving to New York, Vetterlein worked with architects such as Charles Gwathmey and Thierry W Despont, before in 2007 he opened his own office in SoHo, with a focus on architecture and industrial design. According to Vetterlein, his guideline is that an extraordinary object emerges from a strong concept, to which end each project begins with three approaches: listening, observing, and researching. Among Victor Vetterlein's designs are the likes of the recyclable and even edible lamp Bite Me as well as the pragmatic MOSS Home Office, which companies can purchase for their employees so they can work from home, but still can separate the work space from the living space. Also, the & tradition Trash Me made of paper pulp, which can be easily and environmentally friendly disposed of when it is no longer needed, is one of Vetterlein's progressive designs.
