Without compromises and without frills. We only think of chrome-rockets, in case the NASA or ESA (or maybe the Russians) instruct us with the kitchen design for their Mars-Colonization-Program. Meanwhile, we concentrate on our earthly existence and ask ourselves, when on earth razor manufacturers realize that five blades are completely enough and that the word “world first” for them and others should be an off-limit (should be a tabu). Between all this our thoughts are circulating with espresso and good cuisine. Now back to where we’ve started: to the moon and back. All what counts are the “great (big) things” – we call it rational design (shaping) and playful mirth (exhilaration). We cannot wait for our composition.
Fromme & Blum has been founded by Ricky Fromme and Jo Blum in Berlin & Munich 2016. We consider ourselves as an interdisciplinary duo for designing products and creating organization structures with social responsibility, sense and madness.
