Mendel Heit is a product designer who's living in Berlin. He's mainly working on research projects, as well as co-designing and cooperating with other agencies. His own works go towards interaction, 3d-Printing, new (generative) shapes, innovative concepts, intelligent & sustainable solutions, hardware hacking as well as diy/open-source ways of thinking.
Working together with people from different backgrounds (IT, gfx, Art, scientists, engineers..) is a great experience and inspires him a lot.
Mendel worked with Coordination Berlin, ITD Braunschweig and ART+COM. Also worked a couple of years at the Jerszy Seymour Design Workshop on several products, exhibitions and art shows (Vitra, Moulinex, Magis, etc..).
He also enjoyed the great experience to work with glass with the CIAV of Meisenthal (F). I studied at the ENSA Nancy (F) , and then at the HBK-BS (D), on projects for VW, die Bahn, and other companies. Before that, he participated in a vitra design workshop with J.Seymour & Azumis, Boisbuchet (F), and a great stage with Georges Rousse.
