London based Product Designer Mathias Hahn (born 1977 in Germany) started up his studio in 2006 and is one of the founding members of OKAYstudio. After graduating as Industrial Designer in Germany he moved on to the Royal College of Art, where he received a MA degree in Design Products under Ron Arad in 2006. From his studio and workshops he is working on diverse projects in the field of industrial and furniture design. His client list includes companies like Ligne Roset, Marset, Kohler, Magazin, Kvadrat, Another Country, Vertigo Bird, SZ-Magazin and others. His work has been exhibited in numerous international exhibitions and galleries and was featured in many major design publications worldwide.
Mathias is attracted by the material integrity and longevity of everyday objects - in opposition to fast, ephemeral product consumption. Transforming traditional technologies and materials into simple but useful objects he takes a twisted angle at familiar object categories, in order to find new fields of application.
