Stefanie Kubanek is a New York and Munich-based designer and design educator whose work is inspired by her native-German roots and cosmopolitan perspective. She completed an apprenticeship in goldsmithing, earned an MA in Industrial Design at London’s Royal College of Art and completed the PLD program at Harvard Business School. Her international perspective led her to design studios in New York and London. In 2010 she left her position as an associate partner at Pentagram and launched Kubanek Design +. Stefanie taught industrial design and design management at Parsons, New York as well as courses at Pratt Institute and Columbia University. From 2002-2005 she was contract professor at the Free University in Bolzano, Italy. She lectures at various design schools around the world. (February 2016)
