Sebastian Herkner (* 1981) studied industrial design at the University of Art and Design Offenbach, already focusing on his studies during the design of objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details. While still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped improve his feeling for materials, colors, structures and textures. Since founding his own Offenbach design studio am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as ClassiCon, Very Wood by Gervasoni, Nodus, Moroso, Sancal, Luck and Rosenthal, and to work on interior design projects and exhibitions and museums. From 2007 to 2012 he taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as a visiting professor. His work has received several awards, such as the German Design Award 2011 in the category of newcomers, the price for the best Elle Decoration Furniture Oudoor 2013 and a price Wallpaper Design, 2014.
