Michael Schmutzer founded Design Offices and is a forward thinking innovator of working culture. He is a developer of real estate in Germany with his company Centacorn since 1989.

As a specialist in targeted real estate development, he quickly recognized the added value of a brand and developed the first brand properties in Germany. These include such well-known projects as the Silver Tower am Ostbahnhof, Berlin, Park Dahlem, Berlin, Geckohouse, Berlin etc.

In 2008 he succeeded with the establishment of Design Offices. His specially developed working environments of tomorrow are the result of many years of dealing with social and economic megatrends. Renowned national and international companies appreciate the visionary and architectural qualities that his unique spaces offer. Today the Design Offices are the number 1 for working environments of tomorrow and are represented in Germany with 9 locations (Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Nuremberg, Stuttgart) – with more to come.
