LINTELOO is a furniture brand that radiates "enjoying the good life" in every possible way with designs characterized by warmth, comfort, and a cosmopolitan flair.
Dutch Design was becoming a world brand in the nineties but Jan te Lintelo, who launched his first Linteloo collection in 1993, wanted to go even further. He started a new concept in 1995 – the now famous ‘feel-good factor’. The design for easy living with comfortable sofas and chairs was a big success in The Netherlands and soon other countries followed.
The ‘feel-good factor’ theme now ties together the Linteloo range. This translates into their soft furnishings in a relaxed, shabby chic style using crushed linens and cushions with sink-in softness. The right balance between structure and softness in their seating range is a result of in depth research into the ideal combination of down, feather and foam.
Sebastian Herkner studied Product Design at HfG Offenbach University of Art and Design. During his studies he began to focus on designing objects and furniture, honing his keen sense for materials, colors and textures. In 2006 Herkner founded his own studio, and since that time has designed furniture, lamps and smaller items for a multitude of global manufacturers, while also realizing interior architecture projects and museum and exhibition design. His works have won numerous accolades – including elected Maison&Objet 2019 “Designer of the Year”.
Herkner boasts an unconditional love for traditional craftsmanship paired with a good feel for new technologies, a true flair for color, authentic materials and textures, an unadulterated curiosity for different cultures, for embracing and integrating them, and a commitment to taking responsibility for the things and people one works with, not to mention consideration and respect for all of the details and steps necessary to create an extraordinary object.
In the process he creates not just chairs, sofas, lamps, tables, vases and carpets, but an entire cosmos that shines a new light on how objects can appeal to the senses, and where beauty is cultivated from within the process itself and his empathy towards people.
