For aeyde’s “Qualities of Life” series, we sat down with six women who inspire us with their unique views on work, life, and finding balance. In Part Two, we caught up with Katharina Ruhm, 29, who likes to play with our understanding of everyday objects. A Berlin native, Katharina studied design in Denmark and Milan, but was eventually drawn back to her hometown where she could write her own rulebook on design. The product designer takes on everyday objects from vases and mirrors, reimagining how they should look and the place they should take up in our life. We spoke to Katharina about her design process, how being away from her hometown influenced her work, and why she thinks about the word ‘content’ so often. Meet Katharina Ruhm.
