Katharina Ruhm

Katharina Ruhm

Hometown: Berlin

Based in: Berlin

Katharina Ruhm’s work exists between critical design and sculpture–she embraces her making processes (and collaborations) for the functional or conceptual to materialize. Each of her projects are firm reflections on mass and serial production. Katharina’s design results from considerate observations of production processes, and how different materials naturally behave. These observations inform her ability to allow for natural behaviours in her own making, and therefore the 'true quality' within the processed materials. It is as if the material itself were an almost autark "formgeber" (shape former). Katharina desires disparities, transformations and even mistakes. It is not a constructed idea or a precise shape that first determines her outcomes–Katharina gives way for the material to take the lead in the process.
