DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

2016 SEBASTIAN HERKNER

 

De ‘Mark’ dining chair presents a strong, graphic silhouette, characterized by its
almost childlike simplicity. Interesting fact: despite its decidedly contemporary
look and feel, ‘Mark’ harks back to the days when stools and tables were stood
on uneven floors, where three legs were definitely the way to go.

Sebastian Herkner

‘There is a sensitivity and identity to my work that emphasizes the function, the material and the detail.’ Sebastian Herkner (1981) studied Product Design at Offenbach Design Academy. He interned at Stella McCartney in London where he developed a liking and true flair for colour, material and their connection—a characteristic that has never left him. As early as 2006 Sebastian established his own studio and has since been involved in projects for a wide range of companies and institutes, increasingly gaining international acclaim. By now, his trophy cabinet must be bursting at the seams and Maison&Objet even elected him “2019 - Designer of the Year”. Sebastian pairs an unconditional love for traditional craftsmanship with a feel for new technologies, a combination resulting in refined shapes and tactile surfaces—the perfect match with Linteloo.
