Stars are purely a figment of our imagination: not a single star up above is actually star-shaped. However, there seems to be acquiescence across times and cultures that a certain form is identified as a star.
stars is an international studio for architecture, design and visual communication. The firm has an office in Berlin and one in Milan. Our architectural segment is based in Berlin, while design and visual communication are created in Milan. Tom Keller, Andreas Seegatz and Giuliana Corsini manage the studio. The individuality of the partners at the creative core and among employees as well as the difference between the Berlin and Milan environment allow us to develop time-relevant statements for each assignment and to identify innovative processing areas.
Tom Keller, born in Wuppertal, Germany in 1965, is a registered architect in Berlin and Paris. He went to university in Berlin and worked in Paris and Zurich before becoming a partner with stars. His main areas are architecture, interior design and spatial concepts.
