Joachim Tantau
Joachim Tantau is a young artist and designer based in Hamburg, Germany.

Born in 1988 he has been creating furniture and architectural objects since very young age. What started as a hobby at his father’s workbench eventually became a vocation, leading him to opening his own studio in 2013.

His artistic repertoire spans a diverse range, encompassing architecture, furniture, sculpture, and exquisite objets d'art. In his work he merges contemporary design aesthetics with the timeless beauty of Sacred Geometry. The design for every unique piece he creates is hand drawn with compass and ruler and carefully executed in his studio using time-honoured techniques of fine cabinetmaking.

Joachim has also been selected by The King's Foundation School of Traditional Arts, London to teach his techniques and principles to aspiring artists and designers all over the world.
