Since 2005 Sophie Birkmayer is a co-partner of Claassen & Partner. Claassen & Partner have been working with a range of leading clients from various different fields. Designers Sophie Birkmayer and Tammo Claassen see their challenge not only in transforming function into form; they always also integrate their work into a larger, cultural context. they get a drift, incorporate it into a project and feed the result back into the cultural flow.
The fields they work in range from corporate design to product- and interiordesign to digital solutions. the diversity of their projects allows them to sustain a fresh perspective and the high quality of the studios’ output. the core qualities of their work could be characterized as being consequent, straight, reduced to the essential and always focussed on new materials and techniques.
