Christian Metzner


The label is characterized by a timeless, clear design, whose formal rigor is always broken with pleasure. Through subtle, imaginative details and an unusual choice of materials for the hand-made products, the Brandenburg designer plays with the ambiguity of his hometown.

Metzner, who studied architecture and product design in Potsdam and garment technology in Berlin, worked with Saskia and Stefan Diez in Munich. In 2012, his diploma thesis followed in cooperation with Bree. Philipp Bree then took him to the design team of his new brand PB 0110, for which he still designs small leather goods to this day.

But his passion is the material glass and for more than 15 years he has devoted himself in particular to a type of glass that has its origins in Germany in the 19th century. Borosilicate glass, also called "Jenaer Glas", is processed traditionally by hand in a Czech factory. This particular material is a technical glass, characterised by its high temperature resistance, strength and lightness.

In 2023, he revisits his passion for porcelain, the very material he first began working with during his student days. Captivated by its hand-flattering surface, elegant shine and delicate nature, he introduces the first porcelain product in his portfolio: the drinking cup NYX. This creation marks just the beginning of his foray into porcelain, with many more delightful products to come.
