TINNAPPELMETZ is a boutique design studio based in Berlin, established in 2009 by Benjamin Metz and Paul Tinnappel. We work locally and abroad, within both the commercial and residential fields.

We approach every project anew – our aim is to focus on authenticity. As architect and designer, we share the belief that an extraordinary space is created by revealing the unique identity at it’s core through integrating architecture, interior design and decor.

We embrace the grande palette of natural materials and always engage in meticulous attention to detail – no matter the scale.

Our Process

Of course not all projects are a carte blanche opportunity and we initially set up a complimentary briefing on site or at our studio where we discuss the inspirations, expectations, and budgets. Once we have collaboratively established an understanding a contract is drawn and we go to work accordingly.

Every project is different and so is our approach, but along the way we will present our ideas through expressive visuals, material mood boards, and blueprints of our work then open to discussion. Further along we supervise the tender and the construction on site, ensuring initial goals are met and details tuned to perfection.

Over time we have developed a small furniture range of our own. We produce locally in collaboration with a network of small scale manufacturers.

In 2018 we moved to a storefront in the heart of Berlin’s Charlottenburg district. Housed alongside our contract office, the new space allows us to showcase our own pieces as well as a collection of globally sourced products we feel to be rooted in likeminded values towards design and manufacturing.
