Andreas Störiko was born in Cologne, Germany in 1965. After studies in architecture and product design, Andreas moved to Milan in 1994. For one year Andreas worked as an assistant to designer Richard Sapper. At the same time he opened an independent design studio in Milan with clients mostly in the furniture sector. Besides thoughtful selection of materials and production methods he is trying to design the products so that they can have a long life span and hopefully are loved and cared for by the user. His dream is to create products that ideally never will be thrown away.
Andreas is particularly pleased if he succeeds in creating completely new product typologies that can point the way in an aesthetically longterm manner but still can be merged with our traditional understanding of beauty. He also thinks that it is important that products should be produced in harmony with nature.
