The work of Uli Budde investigates the well-known everyday object, finding new solutions to transform the familiar in a thoughtful and functional way. With a close relationship to familiar products, objects and situations, Buddes’ designs take on an easy understanding and acceptance into daily life - a clever simplicity with an unobtrusive presence.
 Within his way of working he has developed a strong handwriting which can be both poetic or graphic, without losing functionality out of sight.
