New Artist at Direktorenhaus: Bea Bühler

Bea has been commuting between the French capital and her home­town Munich for 15 years. It was only two years ago that the inte­rior designer dedi­cated herself to the design of high-quality leather bags — in 2014 she founded her own label.

Designer Bea Bühler discov­ered her fasci­na­tion for bags during her studies of inte­rior design and product design at the École Camondo in Paris. A collec­tion of bags was part of her final thesis, and she grad­u­ated from the univer­sity with a double degree. Born in Munich, she has gained profes­sional expe­ri­ence with renowned product designers in Munich and Paris as well as in regular collab­o­ra­tions with artists. She has been working as a free­lance inte­rior designer and product designer for archi­tects, designers and private clients for ten years. Bea Bühler has received several awards for her work.

The influ­ence of the archi­tec­ture is imme­di­ately notice­able, however, the soft lamb­skin bags capti­vate with unusual, geometric shapes. The Balloon collec­tion was produced by Hermès, the newer Moon bags are produced in a Paris studio. During produc­tion, Bea and her Vespa go to the studio almost every day to work on the last details, because you often don’t know exactly how the leather will look on the finished bag. From zippers to soft inner linings, every detail of the bag is full of work and love.
