Kirsten Hoppert (*1973) studied interior architecture at Burg Giebichenstein Academy of the Arts in Halle. He founded Studio Vertijet with product designer Steffen Kroll in the year 2000. The two partners refer to themselves as "shapers" since they attempt to transform the intangible spirit of a phenomenon into a material shape. They search for shapes that are able to clearly communicate the substance of a topic. Their customers include companies such as Cor, Conmoto, Rohleder, EQ3, Lagopa, Bosch, Jab Anstoetz, Flötotto, Roche Diagnostics and Fujitora. (December 2011)
