Jakob Kukula

Biography
Jakob Kukula is a multidisciplinary creator, working in the fields of art, design and music.
Born and raised in Berlin, he is life-long influenced by the city’s thriving scenes.
After finishing his product design studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, that included abroad experiences at the Pratt Institute, NY and working with Studio Drift in Amsterdam, he returned to Berlin where he worked two years with the Studio Olafur Eliasson and finished his MA Thesis at KHB Weißensee.

As Founder of SpreeBerlin and Symbiotic lab, he currently explores a planet-centric practice; questioning the relationship between humans and nature, seeking ways to reconnect and suggesting ideas for transformation by combining art, design & science.
