Asus: Rising From Manufacturing To Design

Eco Design Exhibition

Posted on Apr 26, 2003 in Education, Exhibitions, Speaking

I organized an exhibition based on a series of Eco Design Workshops that I held at Chang Gung University.

My students showed results of our workshops with Eleanor-Jayne Browne and the exhibition in a small Taipei City café attracted a good amount of design professionals… I hope the students enjoyed the workshop and the little show as much as I did!

Pretty sweet… not even three weeks into my job at Asus, and I am attending the award ceremony for the Taiwan Good Design Award.

A New Challenge

Posted on Nov 1, 2002 in Career


I have accepted a job offer from Asus Design in Taipei. The team is small – I am the sixth designer in the department – but has big plans of which I can only hope to become an integral part of. I am looking forward to the challenge…

再見, GE/Fitch

Posted on Oct 27, 2002 in Career

After a little over one and a half crazy busy years, around a dozen projects, after learning about culture, life and work in Taiwan, and most importantly after making some very good friends, it is time for me to move on to a new professional challenge.

I will stay close by and hope to still see all of you every once in a while, and I am saying goodbye with some good, home-cooked German food… Mahlzeit!

Eco Design Workshops at CGU

Posted on Oct 18, 2002 in Education, Industrial Design

Eleanor-Jayne Browne has asked me to help out a bit at Chang Gung University in Linkou. Over the course of six weeks, I am holding multiple workshops with third year students around the topic of Eco Design and I am planning to present the results in a small exhibition.

Moving

GE/Fitch has moved into our new office in Neihu, Taipei City. Even though some of the furniture is not yet unpacked, I think the space is pretty awesome and I feel a little bit like working in a space ship…

Lecture at Yodex

I gave a Lecture about Verner Panton at the Chang Gung University‘s Design Symposium ‘15 Minutes of Fame’ that is being held during the Young Designers Exhibition at Taipei’s World Trade Centre.

I thought it was great to be there and hope that the students enjoyed my little talk!

台灣到了: GE/Fitch Taiwan

Posted on Mar 12, 2001 in Career

After about two years at Barski Design in Frankfurt, I decided to leave the studio, my home country and the European continent.

I have accepted a position with the design firm GE/Fitch in Taipei, Taiwan and have not only to adjust to a new work environment, but also to a culture and language that is entirely foreign to me… this is going to be fun… or really scary… or maybe a bit of both.
