About     Vimeo    Instagram

is a research driven and conceptual designer operating at the physical and abstract borderlines of object design, narration and space. Past and present fields of operation are hospital design, the mobility sector and the exploration of how synthetic biology might change our body identity and wearable products. He is currently working as a researcher and product designer at Institut für Industriebau und Konstruktives Entwerfen at Technical University Braunschweig while parallely realizing independent projects. His research considers the various stakeholders of a context to create inclusive visions moving between the mass produced and the individual and between the inorganic and the living. Lukas`creations develope futures asking challenging questions. His graduation project explored the possibilities of a grown and living phone cohabitating as extra organ on our body and its ethical implications.

During his sparetime he is in search of a sunny spot to relax his muscles and to work on a cartoon born on a Cordillera mountain top.
