about

Thomas Keis born in Germany. Awarded with the“ Meisterpreis“ Prize by the Akademie für Gestaltung und Desing in Munich. Multidisciplinary artist and cabinetmaker from the German school. He has spent 15 years designing and manufacturing in his studio and workshop, at the moment very close to the mountains of Monserrat near Barcelona. Here he finds inspiration for his individual furniture pieces and free project works.

His pieces present a minimalist and geometric character with a search for perfection and harmony of design, playing with straight lines that draw the object in three-dimensional form. Geometry has always been an important component in his work. His work crosses the border between art and design with the ideation of objects and other forms of artistic expression that involves photography and conceptual works and installations. His latest works are more experimental mixing wood – his primary research element – with different materials.
