Sepehr also an intern at betahaus did the interview.
What was your motivation to study design?
I draw since I am a child and I was always interested in changing things the way I think - it could be a room, a fruit, a table, a lamp or a vacuum cleaner. I was always interested in something that gives me a challenge. I was always asking myself: how can I do it in a different way? First I changed everything in my room, then I came up with task like: How could a coffee machine work better? I had so much fun in solving these challenges.
Are you delighted having an experience in betahaus?
Absolutely yes, the thing is, when I was here for the first time, I was here for the wrong event... but Madeleine (one of the betahaus founders) was inviting me to stay and enjoy the event. I was so inspired by the atmosphere! It was so energizing and I think that's because of all the people that come to betahaus, they have an idea in mind and these ideas drives them to get things done. They're so energetic to solve the problems. This was what I liked the most when I first entered betahaus and so I stayed...
Do you want to keep working at betahaus?
As I love the atmosphere so much and I get so energized by it, I’d really like to stay and work with the betahaus gang. Even when I have to go back to university next week, I will try to work at betahaus once a week.
Is it satisfying working in betahaus and does it make you reach to your final goals ?
Yes - betahaus is a proper place also for designers and I can even imagine working on my student project at betahaus.
And about Berlin, do you think its a good place for designers and also for students?
I can't say it generally but I think on one side, Berlin is a bad place for designers, because they're not paid very well but on the other hand Berlin is so inspiring and it seems to be that nowadays Berlin is that hot spot in Europe. For me it's full of culture of every kind, not just conservative culture or pushing culture or young culture. You can get everything you like!
Thank you for your time.
And no Christoph did not got paid for his answers, even it seems so...

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:
We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!
We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.
The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node.
The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next.
We want to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!).
We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!
We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
