Frame of mind's artists of the month: Jacob | Reischel

Starting out as a fluid collaboration between two industrial design graduates, a photographer and a graphic designer, our artists of the month, design duo Jacob Reischel’s Marie Jacob and Julia Strathmann, are all game for the stuff design challenges are made of.

With col­lab­or­a­tions with MATER­I­AL GIRL, Hyundai and Mont Blanc among oth­ers, these tal­en­ted Ber­lin based women are mak­ing things chicer by the second.Creatively stand­ing out in terms of space and com­pos­i­tion, being mod­ern without des­troy­ing sub­tlety, could nev­er get bet­ter. With each pro­ject that defines and diver­si­fies their style, the artists have just star­ted to explore and expand into a whole new area of crisp, sleek, smart ori­gin­al­ity. And one, that could both inspire and sell, a com­bin­a­tion that is prac­tic­ally leth­al, and def­in­itely the one to look out for, if one is into design that actu­ally works above all (and who isn’t into that, right?).

How did both of you first come togeth­er to work on some­thing cre­at­ive?
We met each oth­er while study­ing indus­tri­al design at the Ber­lin Uni­ver­sity of the Arts. After both of us came back from an exchange year in Mil­an and Bar­celona with a bag full of exper­i­ences and ideas it was clear to us that we had to work together.

You stud­ied indus­tri­al design and ended up shoot­ing for lead­ing magazines and doing cre­at­ive pro­jects instead. Did your under­stand­ing of space influ­ence your style?
Sure! We are not design­ing chairs or the next metro, but cre­at­ing con­cepts, build­ing sets and tak­ing pic­tures are sim­il­ar cre­at­ive pro­cesses. And our three-dimen­sion­al under­stand­ing helps us a lot.

What’s the next thing by you both that the world should be eye­ing right now?
We´ve just been to the botan­ic­al garden in Ber­lin. The plants and flowers are just incred­ible. We shot a series of cacti, flowers and weirdly look­ing plants on colored back­grounds. It is simple but pretty and brings sum­mer into our homes.

Is there someone you would love to work with with­in a day’s notice?
Dav­id Bowie would have been nice..

What’s the one space in Ber­lin you wish you could redo or show in your own way?
Noth­ing in par­tic­u­lar. But we would love to redesign or fur­nish a shop, res­taur­ant or apart­ment… prefer­ably without any budget con­straints. We love to go to flea mar­kets and search for unique pieces for hours. To be able to com­bine this with an interi­or job would be great.

What’s your team bond­ing ritu­al that you guys do before some­thing major?
We often go to museums, exhib­i­tions or just to the coun­tryside and nature to get some inspir­a­tion. When we start a pro­ject all these impres­sions come togeth­er. We sit at our huge office kit­chen table and dis­cuss dif­fer­ent ideas. Usu­ally it doesn´t take long until we come up with a concept we both like.
