In 1992, Jan Philippi opened two retail stores in Hamburg, stocking them both with design pieces that he felt correlated to his ideal of being unostentatious, clear and modern.
With fresh ideas, suggestions collected during many journeys and an unmistakable sense of good design, he discovered companies capable of transposing his visions of design into the tangible. Winged by this headway, he soon ventured the step from retail to wholesale.
As the company’s creative mind, Jan Philippi has been inspiring his designers since then. With extreme precision and great attention to detail, he works closely with his team, from the drafting stage right up to the moment that the product is market-ready.
Even today, that collaboration hasn’t changed: The boss still supports young talents and attaches great importance to good cooperation with creative professionals as well as manufacturers.
Jan Philippi still personally and intensively follows through the entire designing process; he still personally attends to each and every customer and believes philanthropy is a fundamental company principle.
