Gerd followed a pure technical formation in an industrial environment context. Later he got several degrees in art, interior design, light consultant and sculpture art. The combination of his technical background and his feeling for creation and art makes him a more complete designer with not only an eye for the visual aspect but also the technical part. His inspiration comes from absorption of daily visual and emotional incentives. Designing objects and interiors is not experienced as an assignment according to Gerd, but more like a distillation and fine tuning of ideas already present in his mind.
