German by nationality, Patricia Hopfer was born in Buenos Aires in 1964 and spent her early years in Argentina before her family moved back to Europe.
She grew up in Nuremberg, but did her tertiary studies in Paris where she now lives.
After taking a Master’s Degree in Business & Marketing (Ecole Supérieure de Commerce), she began her professional life working in business, in particular in the United States.
Her interest in the importance of aesthetics and function in everyday objects soon led her towards design, where she was able to exercise both her sense of concrete reality and her artist’s intuition.
She began collaborating with designer Hans Hopfer, working for leading makers like ROCHE BOBOIS (France), NEUE WIENER WERKSTÄTTEN (Austria), WK (Germany), and SELLARO (Italy).
A course in interior architecture at the Ecole Boulle in Paris completed her training.
Patricia Hopfer’s varied itinerary and cultural background are reflected in her design solutions. Her furniture, which is easy-to-live-with and modular, enables users to adapt it to their own life style.
Late 2005 she launched her first personal collections. Since then she has shown her work at Maison & Objet in September 2006, for Gilbert Moyse International, and at the Cologne furniture fair (Imm Köln) in January 2007 for Mobilia Collection.
