Hannah Kuhlmann (*1989 Cologne)  is an interdisciplinary designer and curator with a focus on contemporary and collectible design.

Since 2015 she curated several exhibitions especially during the PASSAGEN cologne. The exhibitions showed are based on project works of newly formed temporary collectives with the aim to bring locals and internationals together to create a platform for connection and exchange. In 2018 the exhibition „Homo Ludens“ won the PASSAGEN PRIZE for best exhibition design and concept.

Currently she is working on her own Studio, Studio Kuhlmann that not only creates furniture but also interior concepts. Her furniture always comes with a pinch of humor and combines several functions into one object.

Hannah Kuhlmann graduated 2015 from the academy of fine arts and design in Maastricht, the Netherlands and holds a bachelor of arts in product design.

She has gained her experience trough formative internships for Studio Reinier Bosch, Officina Carolina Wilcke, Bureau Matylda Krzykowski and the Depot Basel.
