Christof J. Mueller
Designer | Maker

Hailing from German sportswear hub, Nuremberg, I am a multi-disciplinary designer with roots in action sports and fitness.

I love to create, with an eye for detail, proportions, minimalistic style, luxury, craftsmanship and quality while understanding the need for designing cost efficiently, balancing high quality look-and-feel with high margin material choices.

Before I went freelance, I gathered 7 years of experience at adidas in my former role as
Designer for the lifestyle brand adidas Originals. 5 years of which I was designing trend and consumer oriented concepts. During that time I used to be heavily involved in shaping the look and feel of the lifestyle running ZX Flux family on a global scale, gaining sound knowledge of building seasonal ranges and product distinction. I was also bringing back footwear from the adi archive and working on new silhouettes for the PAN-European market.

In my spare time my passion for interior design, simplicity and contrast lead me to working on furniture projects. Materials like leather, wood and concrete have always drawn my attention and I enjoy exploring their possibilities hands-on.

Feel free to contact me.
