Constanze Schweda founded Kirigram in 2011.
After obtaining her MA in Interior Architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich she won assignments in Paris, London and Berlin where she eventually established her own business in 2000.
With her architectural background and sculptural approach Constanze Schweda’s work often blurs the boundaries between Design and Fine Art.
Constanze designs furniture, installations and architectural projects. Today she lives and works in London and maintains an active presence in Berlin.
”Steel is a quick material and the kirigram style is very versatile, aesthetically and structurally. It can translate architectural details as well as ornaments into a contemporary language.”
