Klauser & Carpenter
Andre Klauser and Ed Carpenter are two young, London-based designers, each with a series of impressive works under his belt. Together Klauser & Carpenter produce collaborative works as a design partnership although each also pursues individual projects. Carpenter originally trained as a sculptor at Kingston University before completing an MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Arts. Perhaps Carpenter's most prolific work to date has been the "Pigeon Light" produced for Thorsten Van Elten.
Klauser studied Design at FH Munster before moving to London to work in Jasper Morrison's studio, Office For Design. Klauser established his own studio in 2002 and has since worked on independent projects (such as the Mandi Chair, originally produced for Promosedia, now manufactured by Thorsten Van Elten). Klauser & Carpenter's clients include Modus, Authentics, Thorsten Van Elten.
