Our products are objects, ideas and images” they state on their website.
Dorkenwald and Spitzer met during their studies at HIG, Hochschule für Gestaltung, University of Design and Art in Offenbach, Germany, where Sarah studied Visual Communication and Ruth Product Design. They launched their first joint product in 2002 and have been active in product design, workshops, exhibitions and commissioned art projects ever since. Currently they both participate in the Teaching Think Tank of the Ontario School of Art and Design.
