Mikaela Dörfel

Mikaela Dörfel and her team have created tableware collections for many international design brands and markets, especially for the hotel and restaurant sector. She runs her office in the north of Hamburg, Germany. Originally from Finland, much of her inspiration comes from the Scandinavian design tradition and nature. Her work is always highly individual with timeless elegance. Her impeccable detailing emphasizes the strong conceptual ideas. All her designs are innovative yet functional. Mikaela Dörfel knows that a good product takes more than a creative inspiration: “My design is often inspired by nature, but then I am always looking for a clear structure and a consequent basic principle in all objects. The basic idea has to be right but real quality is a matter of details.” Mikaela Dörfels widespread experience with markets and materials and her creative yet precise attitude toward form has lead to products that have a long lasting impact and also to several important design awards. Peak is her first design for Stelton.
