Christofer Born studied product design and arts in Vienna and Nurnberg after his apprenticeship in a silver smithy. He was named master pupil in 1996 and founded an own atelier in Nurnberg.
After his graduation, he worked for Rational in product design and for Niessing in design and product management.
A presentation and climbing trip through Australia followed. Christofer Born makes presentations at the universities Perth and Sydney and climbs up ell the mountains in between.
In 2005 he founded the design studio “born product ideas”.
The design of Christofer Born is always committed to the initial product idea. Many of his works are based on smaller technical inventions. That is how not only “new” designed covers for products emerge, but also completely new products.
His main focus lies on the enjoyment whole ‘using’ things.
His without a twinkle designed light bag, became a classic in only a few years.
Christofer Born has been honoured with numerous renowned design awards.
Works of him are in the collections of the design center Nordrhein Westfalen and the desigh center Switzerland.
