Olze & Wilkens
Karen Olze and Gisa Wilkens finished their studies at the UdK Berlin in 2003. Before that they did an apprenticeship as a carpenter / studied psychology. Between 2003 and 2008 both worked under the name Olze & Wilkens Wohnobjekte, which reflected daily deeds and needs. Through the unusual dealing with the usual and the fusion between different objects their designs gain functional and emotional qualities. After 4 joined years both decided to separate and now Karen Olze lives and works in Berlin and Gisa Wilkens in Basel.
