Klaus Hackl

After training as a product designer at the University of Art and Design in Saarbrücken, Germany, Klaus Hackl joined the London office of Jasper Morrison, where he came in contact with major international companies and developed a variety of products, from household, furniture and appliance design to a complete tramway interior.
Later he began working with Konstantin Grcic on the development of the MAYDAY lamp for the Italian company FLOS before founding his own studio in Munich in the early 2000s.
In all his design activities, he aims for a better understanding of the historic and sociocultural contexts fundamental to the evolution of everyday objects, spaces and services - a research-based approach beneficial for both clients and society. In an effort not only to accept a professional view of design, but to work with a variety of challenges and disciplines instead, the list of companies and projects has expanded over the years.
His work has been awarded with prestigious design prizes, including the IF and reddot in Germany and the "Handwerk+Form Preis" in Austria, has been published in design magazines worldwide and is part of international museum collections.
Klaus Hackl has been teaching as a contract professor for product design at the Faculty of Design and Arts for several years now, linking up personal work experience with a good understanding of design didactics.
