Soap

Tiles
Sebastian Herkner designed the SOAP tile collection exclusively for Kaufmann Keramik. After debuting a prototype made of real soap at IMM COLOGNE, which was met with huge public interest, Sebastian Herkner went on to fully flesh out the design with the iconic German ceramic company. Kaufmann has been mastering the art of handmade ceramics since the 1960s, but their designs are anything but traditional. Known for their innovation and collaborations with the brightest designers, Kaufmann Ceramics creates the highest quality art tiles thanks to their decades of family-run experience.

Design Story

Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim. He studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design), already focusing during his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details. Whilst still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, co­lours, structures and textures. Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as De Vorm, Moroso and nanoo, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums.

Since 2007 he has taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as visiting lecturer. His designs have received multiple prizes, for example the 2011 German Design Award in the Newcomer category. The “Bell Table”, winner of a Red Dot Design Award, is Herkner’s first design to be produced by ClassiCon.

AVENUE ROAD carries a curated assortment of Sebastian Herkner pieces.
