Arp

by Sebastian Herkner


German-French artist Jean (Hans) Arp (1886-1966) recognized a human’s need for silence and feared its disappearance from the modern world: ‘Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence.’ In 1942, he dedicated one of his most famous sculptures, ‘Sculpture de Silence, Corneille’ to the virtue of quietude. Its curvaceous shape and the underlying ideas, inspired Sebastian Herkner to design his modular and versatile Arp collection: soft, harmonious and, indeed, visually ‘quiet’.

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.
