Lise in a few words

My name is Lise, I’m a freelance Designer based in Berlin specialized in soft goods, bags and accessories design.

I built my professional experience for more than 10 years at Horizn Studios in Berlin, M.R.K.T., l’Oréal Luxe and Décathlon in Shanghai.
My experience led me towards soft goods design and particularily bags and travel goods industry. I aquired a deep understanding of the textile and overall production understanding, from conceptualisation to product launch. I recently trained on Circular Economy and Eco-Design, to help you in finding meaningful solutions towards a more eco-responsible design and production. Hands-on, I can also make prototypes in my workshop to quickly put ideas into shape.

Don't hesitate to contact me to discuss about your project!
