Gilbert

by Sebastian Herkner


‘Gilbert’, designed by Sebastian Herkner, gives you the opportunity to design your own, contemporary version of the 19th century tête-à- tête: a sofa that allows people to sit at an angle and invites you in for a proper talk. Of course, spending hours lounging in silence with a good book is also an option. Comfort, flexibility and individuality – ‘Gilbert’ has it all.

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.
