Steffen Reichert was a Research Associate and Doctoral Candidate at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) at the University of Stuttgart from 2010 - 2019. In 2016, he joined the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Digital Design group at Mercedes-Benz AG, as Computational Designer. He completed his doctoral degree in 2019.
He received a Master of Science in Design and Computation (SMArchS) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2010 and a Diplom in Product Design (with Distinction) from the Academy of Art and Design (HfG) Offenbach in 2008.
Steffen Reichert's work was distinguished with many awards (e.g. Bayerischer Staatspreis, Ferchau Art of Engineering, Materialica Design Award, Smart Geometry Champion) and scholarships (e.g. Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, DAAD, Dr. Peter Schaefer Stiftung). His projects have been published widely.
His research interest was focused on biological-inspired, anisotropic design systems, in particular the relationship between form, performance and manufacturing of macro-scale structures.
