Dani Obst of Hüllenpoesie is a surface pattern designer and graduated teacher from Germany.

While working as a secondary school teacher for almost twenty years, she discovered the world of surface pattern design in 2016. She instantly knew she had found a treasure she has strongly felt connected to ever since. Publishing her designs gradually, she has since been approached by international clients. 


Dani mindfully creates playful and colourful patterns with stylised motifs, all inspired by nature, architecture, folk art and everyday life. Her designs have been characterized as stimulating and calming at the same time. 


She describes herself as being a mood catcher. It’s like taking a picture of a beautiful moment, she designs a pattern in the mood of a beautiful experience.
