Hi There! I’m Christof Babinsky An Artist, Entrepreneur and Tech Enthusiast.
Christof Babinsky is an entrepreneur and designer. His work often revolves around the use of glass and lighting elements and regulary follows the principle of “form follows function”.
Christof has a unique view on how the world works and challenges existing concepts with disruptive ideas. His company ASB GlassFloor is currently introducing a revolutionary glass sports floor that shows lines by illuminating the floor from below.
Christof approached the world of art and architecture through his brand ASB Architectural and realises collaborations with internationally reowned artists and brands as well as architectural installations for clients around the globe.
He has a strong interest in the border between the digital and analogue world. This is reflected in his work and in his art.
Christof Babinsky, Managing Director at ASB SquashCourts // ASB GlassFloor // ASB Architectural is a tireless innovator, bringing disruptive innovations to the markets of sports floors, squash courts and interior/exterior architecture. His work is mainly around the use of glass and lighting elements and almost always shows elements of multi-functionality. He believes in form meets function and provides uncompromising user experiences through design. The ASB GlassFloor allows to only make required marking lines visible on a sports field with superior properties for investors and end users. His work in architecture is the introduction of LED surfaces as architectural solutions rather than advertising screens.
