Christian Kayser was born in 1986 in Bonn, Germany. After high school graduation he decided to apply for a bachelor study at the ABK Maastricht. He moved to Aachen and started to study in 2007. During the first year, Christian was able to take a look at the different disciplines of the ABK, such as graphic design, architecture, fotography, autonomous art and product design. He knew from the beginning that he would choose product design. His fascination and interest in furniture was the reason why he applied for this study. During his study he created a range of furniture and other products. The main aspects of his work are functionality and simplicity. He tries to avoid decorative and unnecessary elements within his design. His aim is to apply functions on each component of his products. Christians latest work “synergetic crafts” represents these qualities in a new artistic approach.
