Klemens Schillinger is a product and furniture designer based in Vienna, Austria. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art he has been working as a freelance designer for various design studios as well as carrying on with his own work. He has worked on projects for Hem, RIM-Blackberry and Kvadrat among others.
His goal is to develop simple yet well thought-out products, design methods and ‘Do it Yourself’ recipes. This can result in almost self-evident product solutions with a sparse amount of charm, minimal use of materials and poetic accent. In 2018 he received the Swarovski award for excellence in Austrian. Since 2019 he has been teaching at the Applied Art and Design programme at the Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences.
