After working for Stella McCartney in London, German designer Sebastian Herkne founded his own studio in 2006. Balance and intuition are important and enduring factors in his work, which he sees as a continuous dialogue that straddles the disciplines.
A delicate balance of tradition and innovation, intuition and expertise, with an unwavering passion for authentic materials, textures and colours.
An unconditional love for traditional craftsmanship paired with a good feel for new technologies, a true flair for colour, authentic materials and textures, an unadulterated curiosity for different cultures are the characteristics of Sebastian Herkner's work, from objects and furniture creation to interior architecture projects. Born in 1981, Sebastian studied Product Design at HfG Offenbach University of Art and Design.
His works have won numerous prizes – among others the IF Award, the Iconic Award and the Elle Deco International Design Award (EDIDA). Maison&Objet Paris has also elected him “Designer of the Year”.
