Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

Koeppel Design"Every product is designed and manufactured in my tiny 250 square foot studio! I work with local suppliers and collaborators to produce everything, from the stickers and packaging to our photography and products themselves. I really like knowing the names of everyone we work with, and supporting other small businesses as well."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

Koeppel Design"I want to create delight through the utility and simplicity of my products. Music can create and soothe so many emotions- and I want people to want to come closer, touch my products and use them at home. My hope is that my products will excite my clients and help them take more time to listen to music, share it with their friends and family, and let the analog music experience become a more regular practice in daily life."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

Koeppel Design"In woodworking and in the vinyl-industry, there is often an assumption that it is a male field- so I do really enjoy confounding and surprising people who have that assumption. There were times that it infuriated me when my lumber supplier wanted to talk to "the boss" or sales reps would try to shake my husband's hand at events and give him their cards. Now I laugh, and its easy to shake it off and correct their assumption. I've met so many creative women, collaborators and professionals working in both these fields, it has created a great professional network that I really value!"

Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

Koeppel Design"I have a background in graphic design, and have spent many years creating digital design work, but I will always love working with physical materials. I really like thinking with my hands. That "flow" experience comes to me really easily when I am doing production work- I think some of my best creative ideas come to me when my hands are busy."

Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

Koeppel Design"I think "playful, with purpose" really sums up so much of what I am inspired by, and encouraged by in the world."

Q&A

What makes a space special?

Koeppel Design"Collections, whether it is music, books, art, or anything really! are such interesting windows into someone's emotional values and experience. I love seeing collections displayed beautifully, with pride at home. I particularly love seeing vinyl collections and turntables in less-expected places- in coffee shops and wine bars and retail spaces, it feels like a reminder to slow down and enjoy life."

Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

Koeppel Design"My focus is to help people feel happier and calmer at home, by creating beautifully made, useful products. So many of us feel overwhelmed at times by our work, politics and the news cycle- I design opportunities for delight at home. I find order and organization to be very calming, so I want to create products for my clients to bring order to their music and their collections to help them use and enjoy their collections more often, more deeply, and with a feeling of calm. Order doesn't have to be dry and serious, it can be playful, it can be straightforward and by the book, but it can be emotional, it can be individual! All of my products are designed with this in mind."
