WHO WE ARE

Our motto:
People focused design

We believe in know-how transfer: the intelligent combination of human, social and technological requirements produces distinct products that secure enduring success for our clients.

"Design is tomorrow. Design means more than just something’s outer shape. Design means working towards a better and more appropriate product, and doing so in many different ways.

This is the path that Frankfurt-based design studio Barski Design has consistently pursued ever since it was established two decades ago – today it is one of the most outstanding industrial design companies in Germany.

There are reasons for this, because design means thinking through a new product as a team, and doing so right from the beginning with all the prerequisites and consequences that this entails. Responsible and ultimately good design does not come about as the last step in a technical development process, as superficial shaping, so to speak, but rather as an integral part of the overall development project. This is a complex process, which hinges on intense communication and interaction between all those involved.

However, only in this way will the result be a convincing form, which will be functionally, semantically, ethically and aesthetically valid; a form that will be accepted, understood and seen as right by users; which can be used as intuitively as possible and can become a truly helpful tool as we navigate our way through life. The globalised world, with its rapidly increasing number of participants, needs ever more, yet ever better products, products that do not flood the market with needless features or waste our resources. The world has its frontiers, and dealing with them intelligently is the challenge we all face. This affects both material environmental compatibility as well as the amount of time we can visually tolerate our things. After all, nothing makes more ecological sense than an object we want to use over a long period of time because it works, is visually attractive and thus becomes an integral, unnoticed part of our everyday lives. It can also become an important anchor that gives the rapid change in our product worlds a foundation, a grounding so to speak, so that the ever-quicker “new” is not brought to a “resounding halt”, as the French architect and philosopher Paul Virillo put it back in 1990. Design perceived like this is something completely different to a buzzword and so design really does represent our tomorrow."
