Johanna Tiffe is engaged in mobility since her industrial design diploma at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißenssee in 2002. Fascinated by this design area she decided to work for Cagiva. In the same time she studied automotive design in Milan supported by her DAAD scholarship. Returning to Germany she focussed on projects in the field of e-mobility – e-bikes (LEV´s) and charging infrastructure. With a second scholarship she took the chance to get deep insights in the bike industry. Additionally she saw the opportunity to found her studio form:f – industrial design. In this years she started to work internationally between Asia and Europe for companies like Continental, Emco or Klever Mobility.

Inspired by the congress „Future Project Earth“ (GeoUnion, 2012) she opened up her work field and included consultancy for sustainable mobility and activism. In this process her additional work instrument became art. In 2019 the studio changed to form:f – critical design & art. Beside working for (e-)bike companies she initialized circular.bike – a project focussing on open source and sustainability for e-bikes. NGOs like Chaos Computer Club invited her to promote her ideas.
