Developing designs that are sensible, good to look at and functional. This is how Michael Schwebius formulates his objectives as a designer. After training as a carpenter and studying interior design in Flensburg, he began a career as designer in the furniture industry. Since 1987 Michael Schwebius has been a freelancer; he opened a design office in Munich, but now lives and works beside a South German lake, the Chiemsee. His office concerns itself with corporate design and also with international trade fair, interior outfitting and product design. Cooperation with Schönbuch began when Michael Schwebius designed the STICKS coat stand, STICKS MINI and TRUNK, a large-capacity shoe cupboard for families and the fashion-conscious.
