Philipp Weber

Design Community



‘Where lies the significance of craftsmanship today?’, ‘What is the meaning of the human relation to a material and its processing?’ or ‘What remains of a craft?’ are questions that guide my approach.

Philipp Weber (*1987 in Münster, Germany). In his work, he seeks to find emotional qualities within production processes. The mystery that lies in the craft of glass blowing or the alien work environment of a coal miner are topics which inspire him and feed his fascination.
Weber believes that in an increasingly digitalized world the comprehension and appreciation for original relations of production processes are getting lost. By finding arcane values that reveal themselves in a new and different meaning he poses new prospects on craftsmanship or production process and their importance for our societies.
