Paul Ketz

makes serious fun.

Paul is a product designer from Germany, based both in Cologne and Istanbul. Growing up in the countryside he wanted to become an inventor, a job that seemed non-existing. As a teenager, Ketz went to Cologne and discovered the study product design. After graduating in 2014 he moved to Istanbul where he started his design studio. Since than Paul Ketz stands for creation addressed to Peter Pan inside Lord Grey – because things don’t have to be boring to be serious.

The work by Paul Ketz is not limited to predicates like practically or helpful. Designing for the inner child Paul Ketz creates adventurous objects with emotional value:

“There is no need for another chair to just sit on”.

Playful work without it becoming a toy: serious fun for everyday life.
