Katharina Eisenkoeck is a designer maker whose practice involves furniture and product making with a sculptural simplicity and functionality influenced through the distinct use of materials. Eisenkoeck shows a great interest in the revival of ancient techniques and craft processes brought into a new context as specifically shown in her work with leather. Her approach to design can be described as a practical research through material experimentation in order to create objects that are on one hand long lasting but also show character of uniqueness through the making.
Eisenkoeck’s carpentry techniques started at an early stage of her career at the Art and Design School Ortwein in Graz. Before settling into the profession of a designer maker she experienced an education in architecture at the Technical University in Vienna. A year later she went on to complete her Bachelor at Central Saint Martins College in BA Arts Design and Environment in London. That led her to become an interior and exhibition designer at Lomography where she travelled and worked in cities like Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, Tokyo, etc. to project manage the set up of Lomography gallery stores. The beauty and quality of making products by hand though has always led her back to the profession of a designer maker. In 2011 she therefore decided to set up her own studio while completing her Masters degree at Camberwell College of Arts in the program MA Designer Maker where she graduated in 2012.
