Once upon a time.. APRIL 1. 2012..

We (Nina & Roman) created Peppermint spontaneously because we wanted to buy a digital laser-cutter. This tool would give us the possibility to randomly make our own furniture.

The investment was hard to justify without any source of income, so we decided to build a business to be able to share our ideas! To this day, we don’t own a laser-cutter, but we do have a business, so we are not the only ones enjoying our products!

ROMAN LUYKEN

Roman’s passion had always been the sea, sailing and creating. During his school years, studying yacht design, he learned one detrimental thing: a beautiful yacht is a fast yacht – yes, aesthetics, function and efficiency go hand in hand. Roman Learned to put this to practice, earning him design awards, throughout his Design studies in London and now at Peppermint.

NINA NIKOLAUS

Nina knows a thing or two about keeping things in order. She has her background in architecture and is never afraid to get her hands dirty. Nina manages to stay cool when situations become intense. Without her, we would be lost.

MUNICH STUDIO – Studio L” 2013

Studio L” is our Munich design studio where it all started. Well, not quite, at first it was  just our bedrooms, then it was Roman’s grandfathers living room that was redecorated and used for creative processes, paper work as well as production in its early stages. Luckily Grandfather Luyken is super chill, he even helped out when we were making the first batches of hangers!!

SPECIAL WORKSHOP, STUTTGART

We have partnered up with a workshop for people with disabilities, because we believe in making a difference. It is not always easy, but things stay interesting. The people making our product, like Heinz, understand the purpose behind it all, they are proud and we are proud! While timing might not always be on our side, the quality is never compromised. We love working with you!!

ATHENS STUDIO – LK15 2018

LK15 is the name of our new design studio in Athens. Why Athens, you may ask? Hard times call for creativity. This type of creativity is what Peppermint is all about, creating simple solutions that require little resources to solve our problems and desires. Here we have the chance to expand our team with such creative thinkers.
