Robin Weidner (born 1989, Leonberg) is an explorer and a designer, based in Eindhoven and the Stuttgart. He is driven by the fascination of everyday social hehaviours. Supportive or interruptive processes.



With his design he is aiming for social interaction and engagement for a joyful and rewarding day- and work-life instead of a capitalistic driven efficient way of dealing with the surroundings is becoming it’s utmost importance.

Another efficiency — by open and integrative processes.


Openness and engagement are key to conscious consumption and challenging the global status quo.


Robin figured out different ways of extenalize his thoughts and reseaches. The outcome is based on experiances or leading to new experiances and insights. 

And materialization of thoughts is not categorised in craft, design or art rather in the way what the work is aiming for and how to engage with a topic.

It can be a hands-on transformation by interaction, which is adapable in the real world.
At the other hand Robin is aiming rather questions which might lead to a transformation of the way of thinking, planing and acting.
