Nuremberg Designer and Artist Collin Velkoff examines the role of sculpture inside design with a wide range of unique objects. His focus lies, inspiried through architecture, science fiction and archeology, on experimenting with material and shaping through handcraft.

Velkoff studied at New York Pratt Institute and at Aalto University in Helsinki. For his highly experimental works, he repeatedly earned prizes and scholarships inside and outside of Finland. He was artist in residence at Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in China. His works were shown internationally at exhibition and shows - in Italy, New York, and Denmark among others.
