Received 2008 a Diplom in Product Design (with Distinction) from the Academy of Art and Design (HfG) Offenbach as well as 2010 a Master of Science in Design and Computation (SMArchS) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Steffen Reichert’s work was distinguished with many awards (e.g. Bayerischer Staatspreis, Ferchau Art of Engineering, Materialica Design Award, Smart Geometry Champion) and scholarships (e.g. Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, DAAD, Dr. Peter Schaefer Stiftung). His projects have been published widely.

His research interest is currently focused on biological-inspired, anisotropic design systems, in particular the relationship between form, performance and manufacturing of macro-scale structures.
