My name is Carl Vollmer and I‘m an Industrial Designer and currently based in Essen, Germany. I graduated as a carpenter in 2017 and got my Bachelor‘s Degree in Industrial Design at Folkwang UdK in 2022.

Before and during my studies I was an intern at Studio Jörg Mennickheim in Cologne and worked as a student trainee in the design office of BASF Coatings in Münster, Germany. After that I gained further work experience as an intern at the design studio kaschkasch in Cologne.

I‘m currently studying for a Master‘s degree in Industrial Design at Folkwang UdK, which I expect to complete in 2024.
