Who is Georg Katern?
My name is Georg Katern. I was born in 1987 in Osnabrück and still live in this beautiful city in Lower Saxony in Germany. Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated byhandmade crafts and over the years have felt the need to get creative with old materials.
That’s why I decided to do a solid handcrafted apprenticeship as a chassis model-maker, after finishing school. Over the next 3.5 years I improved my skills and learnt how to work with diverse materials. Creating finished products from pieces of steel and wood become a key part of my life. To improve my skills further I decided to go to a technician school for mechanical engineering directly after I graduated from my apprenticeship. During this time I learnt, among other things, how to work with computer programs for industrial design, which I continue to use to develop and create new furniture ideas. As well as my passion for transforming old items into new furniture, my heart beats for traveling. Enjoying nature, exploring new cultures and countries all over the world are valuable sources of inspiration which continue to influence my furniture designs.
I hope you enjoy browsing my website and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
Your Georg Katern
