KRAM/WEISSHAAR

About

Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram’s work redefines cutting edge design. They have been referred to as “the vanguard of the next generation of digital designers” (FORM magazine) and “the poster boys of a new breed of designers” (International Herald Tribune). Their projects span from software development to process design, from product design to architecture. Weisshaar and Kram’s work focusses on the vanishing line between the digital and the physical, always remaining committed to “redesigning design” (Arch+ magazine).

Clemens Weisshaar (DE) was born in Munich. After an apprenticeship as a metal worker he studied product design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London and was an assistant to Konstantin Grcic for three years before founding his first office for design in 2000. Weisshaar lives in London and Munich.

Born in the United States, Reed Kram (SE, US) now lives and works in Stockholm and Munich. Kram studied design at the trailblazing MIT Media Lab and co-founded the Aesthetics and Computation Group led by John Maeda. He attended the Harvard Graduate School of design and won the Fulbright Scholarship for Art & Design for the Netherlands in 1998.

Their work has been exhibited worldwide and can be found in the permanent collections of the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
