About Mario Taepper : I am male. My aim is to create beautiful design, my design speech should be recognized by everyone. I am positive orientated . My star sign is BALANCE and so I am easy to be managed and I am always endeavoured to settle diffrences of opinions. Under my friends I have a good reputation. My friends like to be in our circle. I am very communicative and interested and open for new things.
My idea of design is that it should be as simple as possible and clear . I see m in myself the good tradition of the Bauhaus.I am looking to design things which are really useful . If posssible my design should always a second function and should only fulfil being beautiful. When people look at a design ther should always be an AHA-effect. And sometimes there should be something tricky.
My design should be also in 10 or 20 years later as modern as it appears on the market. My taste of art is orientated to the modern japanese painting of zen.
MM Design Edition
Advertising clerk Commercial, shop, buy and sale
I studied Art in Berlin. Then I studied French in Erlangen to be a translator. I made an examen in geografic at the Sorbonne.
I worked first as a freelance translator. Slowly we started to open our office of MM Design Edition. Our first steps were made in 1989- We worked in an own office From the sketch, prototype, production and sale, we did all by ourself. That was very difficult an so we decided to search for clients. My first client was WMF with the salt and pepper shacker " Two in one" It became the most succeful product of the compagny and is still on the market. Other products then followed.
We exposed 4 years on the IMM in Cologne and 4 years at the Ambiente fair in Francfort. We had an own booth.
I did not exhibit with other designers.
There were no other events I took part.
