Ottenwälder and Ottenwälder was founded in 1991 by Petra Kurz-Ottenwälder and Max Ottenwälder in the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany.
A team seasoned through many years of collaboration develops product design concepts and user interfaces for more than 60 companies around the world, ever following the principle:
Design is not a colorful wrapper, but an economic necessity!
The weight that design enjoys is becoming ever more important as competition globalizes. A product not only has to look good. It must also be highly functional and, above all, profitable. Intelligent, high-quality design and convincing promises of utility to the customer promote business success in a very direct fashion.
Our responsibility for the various product realms, both today and in the future, increasingly encompasses the aspects of ecology, environment protection, resource-conserving production, and humane manufacturing conditions.
Regardless of whether household products, professional cleaning appliances, lamps, laboratory technology and automation systems, fittings, technical and industrial products, modular furniture, or trade show exhibits – each industry and every target group requires an individualized strategy when developing deign concepts.
Ottenwälder and Ottenwälder have received more than 130 international awards, presented by design, press and marketing organizations.
