Born in South Africa and growing up in Germany, Alexander creates functional and aesthetically pleasing products for everyday life, with a focus on sustainability. He graduated in sustainable product design after being trained in graphics and has always enjoyed gaining experience in many creative fields. He gets his inspiration in many areas of traditional arts and crafts such as pottery, woodworking, goldsmithing and fly tying. Today he uses these experiences in his designs with a great affinity for wood and metal. His goal is to learn about each craft, discover new materials and manufacturing processes and apply them to his work.
