Markus is a research assistant in the Mediated Matter research group. A doctoral candidate, Markus graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Furniture and Product Design from the London Metropolitan University and with a Master’s of Arts in Design Products from the Royal College of Art. His work is shown in exhibitions globally in renowned institutions such as the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Design Museum London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His current research focus is on the combination of technological and biological processes. By merging the two modes through computational design of biological materials and biomimetic fabrication of synthetic materials, his aim is to challenge current methodologies of production while working towards a new framework for design.
