Ding 3000

DING3000 is the studio of designers Carsten Schelling, Sven Rudolph and Ralf Webermann. After our collective studies in Hanover and working for different studios such as Vogt & Weizenegger and Marcel Wanders, who started working together in 2005, designing consumer goods, such as furniture, lighting and home accessories.

We became known by our rough sketches characterized by deep and charming ideas like Pimp My Billy (2005), a series of "adjustment items" in the "Billy" range for IKEA - the biggest seller in the world when it comes to shelves - or S-XL CAKE (2007), a silicone baking tray for making a cake with slices that come in different shapes and sizes. With our sketches, that have so far received over 30 awards for design, including the internationally renowned iF Product Design Award, the Good Design Award, the RedDot Design Award and Prize Design Plus. In addition to a multitude of other publications, in Germany and elsewhere, our work has been featured in several books, including "O design agora!" (Design now!) published by Taschen, "Furnish" and "Desire - The Shape of Things to Come" by Gestalten publishers.

The products by DING3000 are part of the permanent collection in the Badisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe, as well as the Agosto Kestner Museum in Hanover, and were shown in design festivals and exhibitions, for example in the German Pavilion during the EXPO 2010 in Shanghai.
