The name “Dienststelle” stems from my friend Mathias Kohl, who tragically died in March 2015. He came up with the idea of founding the “Dienststelle Grundsatzentscheidung für Gestaltung”, a kind of ironic statement which would translate as “Servicepoint for Design Decision Guidelines”. This was back when we were studying at the HFG in Offenbach.
