We love collaborating with European designers and brands who share our passion. Together we master the challenges of creating special editions as well as our collection line objects.


"I started out studying architecture in Paris, and while studying for a Masters in Design. I spent a year at Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland doing furniture design. Scandinavian design is more focused on making than French design, where the schools are centred on theory and the abstract. I got very much into making, using materials like glass, wood, ceramic, metal, and textiles. From then it was clear I wanted to do something involving furniture."


„The world needs greater optimism and courage when creating.“
Markus Benesch Creates is a multi-disciplinary design studio that creates whimsical surfaces, products and interiors since 1989. The creation of immersive experiences, including the physical space (walls, ceiling and floor) as well as the objects and clothing of the participants has become the studio’s unique identity.
