Mitja Behnke


I am of German origins but born and living in France. My understanding of both cultures inspires me in my work. Either travelling or working with international teams, I’m curious about discovering other cultures and ways of living. During my studies in product design at Strate in Paris I co-conducted a 5-month research in South America about social initiatives and design which was foundational for my orientation. I truly believe in the role of designers in social change, therefore I integrate social consciousness in my daily work. I enjoy real world experiences, solving complex problems and focusing on human relationship. I am now working in New York City as a product and service designer.
