I’m Jan Christian Schulz and I come from a small village in Northern Germany. This is certainly one of the main reasons why I am so fascinated by the culture of this marshy region. During the project I dealt with old crafts and came into contact with many cultural preservationists.

This project was my bachelor thesis at the Hochschule Hannover for Applied Sciences and Arts in the field of product design. I started studying there in 2012 and gained a lot of useful experience in various areas. During my studies I had great stays abroad, including a study semester in Switzerland, an excursion to establish a university cooperation in Indonesia and the chance to exhibit at Milan Design Week. In addition to my studies, I worked as a CAD designer for a furniture company and for the IF International Forum Design in Hanover. During winter 2017 I did an internship at the company of the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek in Eindhoven. Currently I work as designer and project manager for the furniture company Thonet.
