Exclusive Studiokurbos tour: “We want to be the Pininfarina of the future”

Andreas Kurbos studiokurbos LB

Laura Burstein visits Studiokurbos in Stuttgart, where the team has high hopes for its role in automotive design moving forward 

In the heart of downtown Stuttgart sits Studiokurbos, a boutique design firm whose team creates everything from one-off supercars to UX/UI solutions for some of the world’s best known manufacturers.

Rising above the bustling Königstraße and mere steps from the Scholssplatz, the city’s main gathering place, Studiokurbos is in the centre of the action. We arrived just before Christmas, when the stalls and lights of the Weihnachtsmarkt lined the square and surrounding streets, the scent of roasted nuts and Glühwein rising up through the cold, piercing air.  

“The most important thing is the location,” founder and CEO Andreas Kurbos tells me as we take the lift from the ground floor to the studio. “You sometimes have to force yourself to stay outside, there’s just so much happening.”
