Fascination through design

Our mission to fascinate people in a fast-changing cultural and industrial environment with design has its foundation in finding the right solutions, that transgress conventions of the status quo. We are living and evolving in the world of design, social trends, science, research, design strategy and brand design. Successfully established long term collaborations with our clients on a wide range of projects and businesses prove us right.

nr21 DESIGN is the ultimate design studio. We develop design that proves its worth right through the implementation phase. Our intention is to create logical and people-friendly products that impress in the market, thanks to their quality and individuality. We take on projects for start-ups and medium-sized companies right through to global players. We also generate proactive product ideas in order to provide creative stimulus or for actual implementation. Our cooperation with research institutes and universities allows us to support the development and communication of current movements in technology and materials research. The scope of our work ranges from the development of innovation concepts and research projects to the definition of design constants, product families and singular product innovations, to logical product differentiation within a portfolio and/or market.

 

MORE ABOUT OUR DESIGN APPROACH  →

Niklas Galler, the co-founder and design director at nr21 DESIGN, has his roots in car design and consumer goods. From there he and his team developed a comprehensive model for creating design solutions, that combine the context of culture & use cases , strategy and state-of-the-art technologies in a unique way. His strong belief is that the perceived design quality and iconicity of a design derives from a strong and persistent transfer of a profound design concept to a market-ready product. The digital transformation of user paradigms leads us to constantly rethink design conventions.

In recent years Niklas Galler has been a constant member of the iF design jury.
