Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner studied Product Design at HfG Offenbach University of Art and Design. During his studies he began to focus on designing objects and furniture, honing his keen sense for materials, colors and textures. In 2006 Herkner founded his own studio, and since that time has designed furniture, lamps and smaller items for a multitude of global manufacturers, while also realizing interior architecture projects and museum and exhibition design. His works have won numerous accolades – including elected Maison&Objet 2019 “Designer of the Year”.

Herkner boasts an unconditional love for traditional craftsmanship paired with a good feel for new technologies, a true flair for color, authentic materials and textures, an unadulterated curiosity for different cultures, for embracing and integrating them, and a commitment to taking responsibility for the things and people one works with, not to mention consideration and respect for all of the details and steps necessary to create an extraordinary object.

In the process he creates not just chairs, sofas, lamps, tables, vases and carpets, but an entire cosmos that shines a new light on how objects can appeal to the senses, and where beauty is cultivated from within the process itself and his empathy towards people.
