Moritz Putzier

Studio Moritz Putzier is a multidisciplinary design studio located in Cologne. The studio specialises in furniture, lighting, user-oriented products and interior concepts.

Moritz Putzier, born in 1986 in Munich, moved to northern Germany in 2007 to study at the University of the Arts Bremen. During the final years of his studies, he gained freelance experience working for various designers. He established his studio immediately after graduation in 2014. Despite being a young designer, Putzier has already earned several distinctions, including the Design Plus Award and first prize in the Pure Talents Contest. In 2015, he was selected as one of the Newcomer Finalists for the prestigious German Design Award 2016.

His work mainly focuses on furniture, lighting and user-oriented product design intended to address everyday problems. His products combine simple shapes with natural materials, often featuring small technical innovations. He describes his design as something with a "little twist" that prefers to remain hidden rather than vying for attention, defining itself through playful engagement with detail. His objects are driven by the desire to connect with people.
