“I’m not designing retail spaces, I am designing relationships between brands, products and people…
… SOMETIMES IT’S A ROMANCE, SOMETIMES A DRAMA BUT IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT TRUST, LOVE AND DESIRE.”
Volker Katschinski, born in 1970, is co-founder of the dan pearlman group and creative director of the dan pearlman brand architecture. The dan pearlman group is a Berlin-based group of owner-managed creative agencies with about 120 international and interdisciplinary employees, which was founded in 1999. Since the agency’s founding, the interior design architect and creative director has been responsible for all major retail projects dan pearlman has been involved in. His design competence is reflected in flagship stores, brand stores, pop-up stores, and SiS areas designed for clients such as Mister Spex, Marc O’Polo, Commerzbank, Coeo, Escada and Rene Lézard. Volker’s creative style also shapes the DIY-design series “Object of Desire”. The series is published on a monthly basis in cooperation with H.O.M.E magazine since 1999. Volker places emphasis on the creation of brand-specific shopping experiences that are an inspiration to customers. He further is driven by sustainability when working on international projects. Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen e.V. (DNGB) awarded his work in the context of the Marc O’Polo flagship store Berlin with the DGNB Certificate in gold. The project was further awarded with Der bronzene Nagel des ADC in the Design Draft – Sustainable Design category.
