In 2014, after collaborating with each other for some years, Ana Relvão and Gerhardt Kellermann founded RelvãoKellermann, an office for industrial design and product development. Their work has being requested by brands, such as Bulthaup, BFS, Auerberg or Holzrausch, or inventors who are seeking to bring their
patents to life. The Office is based in Munich, Landwehrstrasse 37.

Back in 2012, Gerhardt Kellermann started his own industrial design and photography studio in Munich.
His designs bribe by the harmonic interplay of hard and soft elements and they thereby convince with maximal functionality. Thereby Kellermann already combines the spirit of design with innovative
ideas, in order to create some inspiring novelties. Kellerman is inspired by arts, design, fashion, music and film. That’s a creative cosmos, out of which Kellermann grows and which also develops his works of industrial design and photography. Kellermann is also invited teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart, Saarbrücken and Braunschweig. Some of his customers are Auerberg, Bulthaup, Flötotto, Hay, Hermann Miller, Mattiazzi, Silhouette and Wästberg. Amongst other important events, he was nominated by the city of Munich in 2014 for its Förderpreis, under the category Design / Winner of the Open Call, Art in the Public Space of the city of Munich with Ayzit Bostan with Replika, awarded with the Grant of the Studienstiftung des
Deutschen Volkes for Industrial Design. Read Less

Gerhardt Kellermann is the photographer and industrial designer whose works have just
the right marriage of soft and tough elements... with Satellite Voices he talks about the
cosmos of culture.

What was the first thing you ever made?
I find it hard to commit myself to a project or anything else I am working on. Lots of projects
are the first thing I ever made in a certain way. It can be product, a photograph, a book or a short film.
The most exciting and fascinating thing is to face new projects and challenges, things you have never
done before.

What’s your dream project?
There are many projects I would enjoy to work on but I cannot say that there is one particular project
I 'dream' of. The most important thing for me is to work with a company, brand, partner or magazine
that has a certain esteem, respect and understanding for my way of working.

What do you wish you had written / created?
I don't think it's productive to wish or yearn for things that already exist. The goal is to find and
observe things that inspire you. It's about combining what already exists to create something new.

Who’s work / art / music would you recommend on checking out?
For sure, Ayzit Bostan. Her work spans many disciplines; from clothing and installation to music
and film. Her style is uniquely sensual yet sharp and clear. It is for this reason that I am glad to wear
her clothing and accessories. I am constantly amazed by how many people ask me about my clothes
when I wear Ayzit Bostan. On a few occasions I was actually fortunate enough to participate in
a few of her projects. It is always very inspiring and a lot of fun to work with her. I would also
recommend the work of Guy Bourdin. I am fascinated by his photography as well as his person.

How do you describe your work?
My body of work is hard to describe and define because of its diversity. Most people who I deal
with know me as a photographer but mainly I work as a industrial designer (a strange thing considering
my thesis was not product, it was a book). In the past I worked as a freelancer on a few architectural
projects but currently I am working on a multi-disciplinary installation that I can't talk about yet.
Alongside this I prepare my teaching lessions for the State Academy of fine Arts and Design in Stuttgart.
I think that Art, Design, Fashion, Music, Culture, Film and Photography is a big cosmos, influenced
by each other in which the results becomes exiting by crossing boarders. I am glad to have the
opportunity to participate in the exchange. Read Less
