"Welcome to my world of product design and

color & material and how to find inspiration and get concepts to spirit up your interieur or

upvalue your product."

As I´m a product designer with a focus on color & material design I love to explore and to get inspirations from all kinds of "sources".

The last years have been very intense in developing myself and learning more about the effects of our environment and the inlfuence of our lifestyle on how comfortable and satisfied we are in our every day life.

I´m happy to share these personal experiences and looking forward to getting in touch with you.


Optis World has invited me to take part at their conference to talk about my work. I held a presentation about my latest projects and color and material conception.


Found this publication by chance while sitting in a café - I´m so proud to see my designs in a magazine.


Rotterdam for me is very inspiring and new. It was my first visit and I had not much time to explore, but I will definitly come back to experience design, museums, lifestyle and architecture.

Zur Messe 2017 stellte Ritzenhoff die neue Marke Livø vor. Die skandinavisch angehauchte Kollektion - benannt nach einer dänischen Insel im Limfjord- besteht aus minimal, lebendigen Produkten.

Als Designerin vor Ort war Christiane Elle zuständig für die Entwicklung der neuen Marke in Zusammenarbeit mit Sieger Design und die Gestaltung der Kollektion.

Mehrere Produkte wie ein Porzellanservice, Gewürzmühlen, Essig-Öl Karaffen und Tabletts hat sie in dieser Zeit entworfen und bis zur Markteinführung betreut.

I didn´t have the best weather during my trip – but somehow it enhanced the beautiful dark colors and the amazing light scenes.

Tea cups in a contemporary round silouette and much volume for a delightful tea time.

They are made of light and high quality borosilicate glass.

A glass lid keeps the tea warm and holds the bag after using.

The lively color concept makes the collection playfull and joyous.

Sun bleached surfaces and very light and summer colors.


During the workshop, Scholten & Baijings will challenge the participants to develop their own grammar of colour by using their “constructive thinking” method. Various aspects such as colour analysis, compositions and applications will be explored. The objective is to inspire and stir your imagination.
