Philipp Stummer, geb. 1977 in Linz, aufgewachsen in Viechtwang/Almtal
My name is Philipp Stummer, I was born in Austria. I have studied Dance Education at Bruckner Conservatory Linz (1992-1996) and Professional Dance at P.A.R.T.S in Brussels (1996-1999). I lived in Belgium and Holland and now in England. Until I was 35 years old, I was a professional dancer. I travelled all over the world performing contemporary dance pieces with companies like Galili Dance and Motionhouse. I had a very successful career and thoroughly enjoyed my work as it was creative, exciting and challenging. I met many very interesting people and especially enjoyed the creative and varied aspect of this work. I have also composed my own music and played the drums throughout my life.
I truly love my second career as a furniture designer and creator. Every day I channel my creativity and my love of precision into my furniture. I really enjoy watching my projects grow and take on a life of their own as I am creating them. Once I have ﬁnished a piece, and I am completely happy with the curves, the straight edges and the ﬁnishing, then, only at that moment, am I truly satisﬁed. I have recently been awarded: The Gordon Russell Award, The Andrew Varah Award and the City & Guilds Medal for Excellence. Especially proud I am of the ‘Mini Maestro’ I created in 2015. Mini Maestro made second price at the Young Furnitures Company Innovation Award, and ﬁrst price at the YFM Company Design Award. In conjunction with my studies I was working for Armando Magnino on a big project for the Shakespeare Birth Place Trust, and now, as a self-employed designer and maker I am currently working on commissions and producing a series of Mini Maestros.
