Sebastian Herkner established his design studio in Offenbach, Germany in 2006. Since that time, he has designed furniture, lighting and products for brands all around the world. Sebastian’s design ethos is driven by quality and function as well as tradition and innovation. His designs are very personal, developed using intuition and instinct, working with brands who share his vision and responsibility for products.
Named Maison & Objet’s 2019 Designer of the Year, Sebastian’s works have won numerous accolades – among others the IF Award, the Iconic Award and the Elle Deco International Design Award (EDIDA).
Rakumba is the first Australian brand collaboration for Sebastian. Despite operating on opposite sides of the globe, the collaboration with Rakumba’s product development team has been close and intense, continuing our international design legacy and yielding results that speak for themselves.
