Product designer Katrin Sonnleitner lives and works in Karlsruhe. After graduating from the HfG Karlsruhe (Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design), she developed design and exhibition projects under a grant at the design laboratory Bremerhaven, such as a research project in the Bionics department for the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research.
In 2007, Katrin Sonnleitner opened her design studio in Karlsruhe. Her works, in which she particularly explores the relationship between people and objects, often find themselves in the interface between art and design and are exhibited around the world.
After teaching at the HfG Karlsruhe (product design) and a temporary professorship at the FH Mainz (interior design), Katrin Sonnleitner is overseeing international design workshops and projects for the cross-fertilising collaboration between art and design schools.
