Reinhard Plank

by Valentina Neri

Reinhard Plank is an italian designer started investigating the relationship between humans and objects and how people interact with each other.
In 2005 Reinhard decided to focus mainly on hats, as in them he saw the embodiment of that dichotomy: a hat can both protect privacy and attract attention.
Observation, experimentation and lightness remain key elements at the core of each and every Reinhard Plank’s creation.
He works from his atelier located in the countryside outside Florence, surrounded by nature and his team.
