Dirk Winkel


Dirk Winkel is a Berlin-based product designer who graduated from the Royal College of Art London, MA Design Products in 2010. Specialized in lighting and furniture design, he set up his design office in Berlin in summer 2011. Driven by the idea of formal purism as a basic principle of sustainability, his great interests are the exploration of pushing the boundaries of mass production techniques, the rethinking of light and lighting paradigms, and the investigation of new materials and their ecological and design potential.

Since 2012 he has been teaching Design Construction at the Industrial Design course of the UdK Berlin. In 2022, he was appointed guest professor for product design at the HBKsaar. His work has won numerous awards and nominations like the Swedish Design Award (Svensk Form), Designs of the Year (London Design Museum), the German Design Award (Special Mention) and the Editors‘ Choice Award (Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair).
