About Bernhard Burkard

There is no way the compare design and art. The two fields have nothing in common. There might be design pieces which look arty and are based on good craftsmanship. Still this has nothing to with art. Even if art is based on industrial production, it should not compared with design as its propose is complete different. In our view design is about innovation, production technic, function, craft and proportion of an object. Art follows other propose. This makes an artist. We are designer.

Our inspiration often comes from daily life. Face the world with open eyes. Lots of smart solutions already exist – they just need to be transferred into a new context.
