Stefanie leads the way with an eye for all things design: both material and product, and future trends on how we live and work. With a degree in media science, she served as head of communications for several years for TV productions. This ascended into working in contemporary art, representing artists and galleries, culminating in joining Bureau N in 2015 where she works with leading design brands, international exhibitions and prestigious institutions. When she’s not busy steering the agency into the future as co-director, you might find her getting dirty and tending to the season’s best in her urban garden.


Silke founded Bureau N in 2008 to combine her expertise in strategic communications with an excitement for the untold stories in the cultural world. With an academic background in international marketing, she has consulted with top brands and some of the world’s most influential museums and events, elevating the voices of galleries, institutions and creators alike and paving the way for how the art world communicates to an audience beyond its own network. On top of her ability to whip out a million ideas a minute, she happens to be a trained pudding maker at Dr Oetker.




Before joining Bureau N, Malte completed his studies in cultural sciences and management that took him around the globe, across the USA and Beijing to name a few. His experience with contemporary art museums, international film festivals and theatres in both project management and production, drove him to strive for increased accessibility and growth within the art world, an objective that ultimately led him to the special projects and business development role within our team. 


With a degree in English and Culture and Arts Media, Gabi left her hometown of Hamburg for the exact opposite end of the country in Weil am Rhein to join the press department of the Vitra Design Museum. Now based in Berlin at Bureau N, she consults on projects in design and culture, masterfully balancing attention for fine detail and the big picture and an admiration for contemporary and nostalgia. Hailing from the north, she’s never been skiing and doesn’t regret it.


With a background in Fine Arts & Creative Writing, Effie has been working as a writer and editor for nearly a decade; specialising in art, fashion and design. Formerly based in London and Berlin, she has relocated to Athens where she works remotely as a researcher for publishing house gestalten and as a writer supporting all units at BUREAU N. Whenever she’s not in front of a keyboard, she teaches classical Pilates to bring body and mind together.


Inga is a trained architect and the co-founder of the relay, a dynamic, celebratory archive of FLINTA role models in architecture and design. With a combined background in architecture, philosophy and art history, she has gained experience in designing, exhibition curation and amplifying the voices of creatives within and outside of the digital realm. Her best-kept secret is that she once danced in an international ballet competition and not so secret are her fabulous ferments.


With a background in design, Emma was somehow naturally drawn to the world of words and ultimately cultural publishing. As a seasoned culture writer and researcher, her journey embodies a commitment to nuanced communication and interest in the wider social milieu. This exploration has taken her from the Netherlands to Istanbul, New York, Berlin and now Rome where she is currently pursuing her masters. When she is not deeply engaged in the inner workings of the arts and culture, she is taking advantage of the obvious benefits of Roman life.  


Aurel is always seeking new challenges. After studying horticultural science, he moved on to carve a path as a sommelier in some of Berlin’s Michelin-starred restaurants. He soon discovered that what he loved the most about his role was being a good host. As our Office Manager, he makes sure everything runs smoothly. Outside of work he funnels his passion for structure into board games. Aurel is currently doing his master’s in language and communication to explore his fascination of profound conversation. 


Her passion for contemporary arts and a desire to explore, translate and make accessible the art world for a greater public has brought Zaida from Barcelona, to London, the Netherlands and later Berlin. Her heart however is Catalan and she’ll never let you forget it. Her background extends across communications and art management within institutions and artist studios alike including the MACBA and Tomás Saraceno’s studio. She now leads our Art Unit and returns from every trip with a suitcase full of local delights.


Friederike has always loved digging into the story behind an image or object, a passion that ultimately led her to a Masters in art history and a career in communication within some of the city’s most renowned institutions including the German Museum of Technology and Berlinische Galerie. Since joining our team as a consultant within the art unit, she continues to work out the various storylines of the city’s art scene. 


As a trained architect, Caroline leads our architecture unit with a distinct gift for translating built visions into words and illustrations for international clients in architecture, urbanism and design. She has co-curated exhibitions addressing urban landscapes and teaches at Bard College Berlin. Fully immersed in Berlin since the 1990s, she has been party to some of the city’s most exciting transformations, though she still secretly wishes she could merge Berlin with the mountains and “Breeze”of her hometown of Munich.
