Diana Kitzinski

Diana Kitzinski (born in 1977 in Opole, Poland) lives in Berlin. She is one of the few interior designers to be concerned with sound and acoustics. Even as a student at the Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Design she was researching acoustic materials. For the Zeche Zollverein in Essen she designed a Chamber Music Room for New Music. From 2007 to 2008 she worked in the Stuttgart interior design firm Atelier Brückner and was involved in the development of various sound projects.In her projects she creates a connection between spatial art and sound art, using material garnered from urban research. She is currently taking part in the research and design of the acoustic environment of Ernst Reuter Platz with the "auditive architektur" laboratory. Her meeting the programmer Brigitte Krämer during the Berlin "Operare" workshop in 2009 has resulted in an interdisciplinary collaboration of sound and architecture. With her "Alphabet" project, she reached third place in the Berlin "Operare" competition in 2009, together with Irene Mattioli and Christiane Hommelsheim.
