After achieving a B.SC. in mechanical engineering in England, Carsten Astheimer studied transportation design in Switzerland and the US. He subsequently managed multiple automotive and design projects with Pininfarina before creating Astheimer Studio where he directs a team with a wealth of design experience. Not influenced by any one style, but maintaining strong design principles, Carsten believes that design should play its part in acting responsibly towards sustainability.
“My earliest memories are of drawing, creating, pulling things apart and rebuilding them, and I am lucky enough to still be doing that today, only now with a great team of like-minded people, bringing ideas to life for fantastic clients around the world.”
Astheimer Studio believe in approaching each new project with no preconceived ideas, no limitations, so they can push boundaries creating products that are unique and pure. The objective is always to create products that last the test of time, with the belief that "Perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
