Nikolas Heep studied architecture at the TU Berlin and AA London. In 2005 he founded the design studio KIM+HEEP with partner Mia Kim. Projects span from commercial product and interior design to conceptual installations, research and teaching. After joining the Angewandte under Ross Lovegrove, he has subsequently taught alongside Hartmut Esslinger, Fiona Raby and Anab Jain. Each era has added a new perspective on what it is we call design, making Design Investigations an exciting and multi-faceted place to work and study. As part of the team Nikolas supports students in their main design projects, and also teaches courses like “Integrated Expert Labs” and “Project Communications”.
