Nina Mair was born in 1978 in Austria and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and at Leopold Franzens University in Innsbruck. In 2006 she founded the design studio Pudelskern together with Horst Philipp and Georg Öhler. Since 2012, Nina Mair has been working as a product designer and interior designer in Innsbruck.
Nina Mair’s work focuses on the definition of individual identity. Working closely with her customers, she develops a storyboard in the first place, which describes the entire design process. Providing an outline from the design process up to realization, the storyboard serves as a basis for the development of objects and architectural designs. Nina Mair’s designs are characterised by an understanding of materials, timeless design, functionality and sense of humor.
