Professor Lutz Fügener began his studies at the Technical University Dresden, where he completed a foundation course in mechanical engineering. He then transferred to the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle/Saale, Germany, where he obtained a degree in industrial design in 1995.
In the same year, he became junior partner of Fisch & Vogel Design in Berlin. Since then, the firm (today called “studioFT”) has increasingly specialised in transportation design. Two years after joining the firm, Lutz Fügener became senior partner and co-owner. Since 2000, he has been chair of the BA degree course in transportation design and is a member of the board of governors of Pforzheim University.
