Creating something every day, thinking big with a view to social and technological developments, and initiating visionary changes through small steps – this is what fulfils Birte Jürgensen most.
Her creative drive goes hand in hand with an innovative power that is fed by the friction between emotion and functionality, art and technology. And these are indeed the two poles of her biography as Birte studied painting at the State Academy of Art in Düsseldorf, followed by mechanical engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology. As a graduate engineer, she also completed a degree course in industrial design at the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel. After working as a designer in the interior design department of Volkswagen AG, she founded her own company, zweigrad Design, in 2002.
As an engineer and industrial designer, Birte is always looking for new opportunities – and she does so with competence and perseverance. As a founder and partner, she continues to shape the company. Being in charge of the corporate strategy, Birte sees zweigrad as a dynamic living being she constantly supports with fresh ideas, analytical strength, intuitive decision-making, and the experience of twenty years in management. Her credo is: “Change, however small, emerges from an open mindset, structure, and, above all, passion.”
