German Designer Christoph Beier – FI Meets Thomas Huber
Christoph Beier’s “FI meets Thomas Huber” sleek, bold aluminum SIGG bottle design was the ideal souvenir for those coming to see expert climber Thomas Huber at the Finanz Informatik and a stunning submission to our Design Annual 2015. Additional German Designers that have contributed to Graphis include Fons Hickmann, Olav Jünke, Trudi Steinbuss, Maria Tomeczek, Goetz Gramlich, Michael Matzke, Patricia Burgetsmeier and Gunter Rambow, among others.
In 2013, famous German speed-climber Thomas Huber spoke at the Finanz Informatik on it’s Management-Congress about risk, adventure and success in the world of mountains. Beier’s aluminum bottle designs were a perfect gift to those wanting a souvenir.
