Sarah Böttger lives and works in Wiesbaden, Germany. After finishing her apprenticeship as a furniture maker, she studied product design at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach am Main. During her studies she spent one semester at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki where she focused on furniture and glas design affected by a strong influence of the northern culture.
Her approach to design is based on everyday experiences and the habits of people which leave their marks in her creations. While being conscious of the used materials and their processing, she believes traditional and modern techniques can create exciting intersections. She does not focus on diverting trends, but the ambition to develop functional objects that ought to be used and lived with in the long term. In order to achieve a unique identity and appreciation, every detail needs to be thought through carefully.
