Reiner’s capabilities appear to be limitless. He works as an Interior Designer, Furniture Designer, Freelance Editor for various magazines, online blogger, founder of Likeforms, oh, and a fully registered Architect. As well as keeping all these balls in the air, he kindly found the time to talk to Tilt Shift Rotate.
He describes his work as “holding a fine balance between space, material and typology. My designs have that special ‘something’: that poetic spark that sets it apart from the ordinary.” We at Tilt Shift Rotate have to agree.
Tilt Shift Rotate: What does design mean to you, what is your ethos?
Simply creating objects and spaces that last and make sense.
Where do you do your best thinking?
Wherever I’m on my way.
Describe your day in 5 Words?
Plow Sow Flow Glow Show
If you could do a commissioned a piece for anybody, who would it be?
Designing a house with its interior and its furniture on a nice location for a private client.
In the future, what are you afraid of?
World War III.
