Ragnar Markus and Maria Kahnwailer set up MAWK through a desire to bring up together a shared aesthetics in the shape of contemporary accessories.

Their work is inspired by contemporary art and emerges from the combination of traditional craftsmanship with new technologies.

The interaction that takes place between a creative couple plays an important role in the final outcome of their collections. Maria’s approach comes from her jewellery background with an eye for detail while Ragnar is rooted in computer graphics with a broad interest in current technologies. As a result, a mix of a playful experimentation combined with different shapes and materials with the aim to create innovative and bold designs.
