Michael Raasch

"All my designs are based on a simple philosophy: the search for the ‘essential’."


As a designer of furniture, lighting and accessories, German designer Michael Raasch earned his spurs long ago, but he is still fascinated by the design process. You start with nothing, just an idea or a problem. And as the process progresses, something emerges that wasn’t there before, something which is shaped purely by the creativity required to resolve the challenges between form, function and technique. That’s always exciting.
