Martin Schatz

 Back to Artists

Martin Schatz learned carpentry and studied product design.

 

 

After graduating from the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee, he did design-historical research on the duration and transience of material culture at Hiroshima University. During his time in Japan, he turned decisively to wood craftsmanship, and since his return to Berlin, he has increasingly devoted himself to the design and manufacture of furniture made of wood.

 

 

Schatz works in a field of tension between the naturalness of wood and the artificiality of form. On the way to the handcrafted production, he designs wooden joints that determine the shape of his tables and stools.
