About Frederike Martens

Trained as an industrial designer with a particular emphasis on glass and ceramics at the Design School in Halle, Germany, Frederike Martens (born 1987) has a rare talent for pure and strikingly simple shapes, and a preference for colours that will stand the test of time. Her work displays a special sensitivity to how materials work, both alone and together, and her sense of balance and proportion is impeccable. However, for the young designer the practical usability of any given item is equally important. The Sablo tableware line comprising 18 distinct items is her first design project for blomus.
