In this case, age means nothing. At 37, the German designer Sebastian Herkner, who trained at Offenbach University of Art and Design, is following his journey thanks to several collaborations with international design houses (no less than 21 projects during 2018 for Moroso, Dedon, Thonet and Lintello, to name but a few), and over the course of the past decade he received around thirty awards in recognition of his innovative yet traditional work.
