Julian Appelius was born in Munich in 1973 and grew up in France and Germany. After the high school he made an apprenticeship as carpenter and studied sculpture at the Academy of Arts in Munich, afterwards he studied Industrial Design at the University of Arts in Berlin and graduated in 2003 founding his office there.
