Prof. Peter Raacke: Designmai 07 Berlin

The perfect backdrop to visit Professor Peter Raacke in the German capital

Scene of the Crime:    Sushi Circle + Haus am Waldsee
Weapons:                   Camera, microphone and many, many questions

It was a great honour for us to be able to meet and interview the esteemed master of industrial design, the creator of the world famous “mono-a” cutlery set and the Afri-Cola bottle and pioneer in corrugated cardboard furniture design. We talked about his views on design in general and specifically his philosophies.

Mr. Raacke had fun telling us stories from the late 60s and of his time as a university lecturer at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg, as well as his first trip to America at the end of the 50s where he visited his Bauhaus contemporaries.
