OMOTE URA Product Design was founded by Michael Grandt in 2020 and is based in Düsseldorf.
The studio puts its focus on lighting, interior items and furniture, working with a wide range of materials and manufacturing techniques.
Aim is to create designs that are reduced to what is essential, yet convery a sense of human empathy, and thoughtful attention to detail.
Michael has spend a number of years living and working in Japan, influencing his approach to aesthetics and design.
The Japanese name of the studio OMOTE URA losely translates as front and back.
Beyond what is obvious on first sight, good design also needs a strong backside – all the hidden facets and small details that will be discovered and appreciated rather over a longer time of ownership.
