burkhardthauke is a multidisciplinary design studio founded in 2009 by Ralph Burkhardt and Daniel Hauke. As an office and with a network of partners we design for companies in the areas of design, product and architecture, as well as for institutions of public and cultural spheres.

We are convinced that the most precise solutions are found together with our clients and within an open and passionate dialogue. We analyze, visualize and keep an eye on functionality, aesthetics and efficiency.

Our office has been recognized with national and international design awards. If you are curious to hear more about what we can offer, if you want to collaborate with us, purchase a certain Print or just play some ping-pong, do not hesitate to get in touch.
