Christian Frank Müller

As a multi skilled designer with a specialisation in textile design Christian Frank Müller realises a wide range of different projects along his themes diversity and details and simplicity with a twist.

"I like simple things. Some people would say ‚boring‘, but boring is in my opinion not bad. It’s just the absence of excitement in a world that is full of exciting things and where every new object is just trying to raise the level of excitement."
