As designers and craftsmen, we know that you are always looking for beautiful things that should be practical and durable at the same time. This is especially true for the communication of a company and its brand.
At tyyp, we manufacture paper products by hand. Most of the work steps are carried out without the support of large machines. There are good reasons for this: quality craftsmanship and the possibility of producing small runs of beautiful design products.
Our specially developed modular system for materials allows us to manufacture the products quickly. Many parts are used equally for different products and are thus prepared in stock. This enables us to offer design products at fair prices.
If it does happen again, we work closely with Berlin workshops for people with disabilities.
Founded tyyp by Christoph Andrews, a native of Berlin and product designer. The name tyyp is derived from the "Typography“ and the English word "Type“ from. The choice of this name turned out to be appropriate, because the typography relates in the traditional sense to the art and craft of printing and today to the design process with fonts, images and graphic elements. And the English word "Type“ means font and also brings tyypmany levels of meaning with it.
