Kaschkasch
Colonia
design studio kaschkasch was founded in 2011 by florian kallus and sebas-tian schneider. the duo works in furniture, lighting design and art direction for several national and international clients.
being a duo, collaboration is a crucial aspect of kaschkasch’s work. dis-cussion is key. kaschkasch approaches design as a helpful and practical component of life that conveys character and attitudes through the ex-pressiveness of restraint. basing themselves on this approach to design, kaschkasch wields a characteristic formal language that is inherently present in each design: it is a symbiosis of straightforwardness and beau-ty that toes the line between function and formal severity. the results are modest, challenging, intelligent and logical. kaschkasch questions prevail-ing norms and offers new answers to existing everyday demands. 
florian kallus and sebastian schneider share a background that combines hands-on and academic education: both are trained as cabinet makers followed by studies in product design. this versatility informs everything kaschkasch does. the studio appreciates the hands-on insight, practice and technical understanding, which contributes to their design method: traditional craftsmanship techniques and a mindset geared towards inno-vation, disruption and new technological solutions.
