Karen Olze et Gisa Wilkens have a slightly different route. If Karen began her studies in carpentry, Gisa embarked on studying psychology. It was not until 1998 that they meet in the context of new studies at the UdK Berlin in industrial design.
Just graduated in 2003, they associate and founded their company in the name of "Olze & Wilkens Wohnobjekte" reflecting the actions and daily needs. Through this unusual encounter and study of traditional objects, their designs acquire functional and emotional qualities to none.
It was only in 2008, after four years together, they separate to form their own studio in product design and illustrations, each on their side. Karen stay in Berlin, while Gisa begins in Basel.
