Werner Aisslinger

Werner Aisslinger, a designer, product designer, brand designer and idea provider who not only supplies his designs to major furniture manufacturers, but also to other well-known brands, from the automotive industry as well as world-renowned men's outfitters, likes to fall back on him. No wonder, because the German furniture designer and architect has made a name for himself and collected many international awards - he received the "Red Dot Design Award" and the "Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany". Internationally, he was already awarded the "Compasso d´Oro" in Milan in 2004. Some of his classics have since been added to museums' collections, such as in Paris, or the "Neue Sammlung" in Munich. His most famous work can even be admired in the permanent collection of the "Museum of Modern Art" in NY. This is the so-called "Juli Chair".

As an architect, Aisslinger worked on complete conversions and extensions, including for television studios. He passed on his knowledge to younger generations of designers, working as a lecturer at the HdK and the Lahti Design Institute in Helsinki. From 1998 to 2006 he held a professorship at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe. As a furniture designer he has worked for well-known manufacturers in Europe. His style is characterized by working with new materials and manufacturing techniques, not so much with form.

Werner Aisslinger was born on 03 November 1964 in Nördlingen and studied at the "Hochschule der Künste" in Berlin from 1987. During these academic years until 1992 he already worked for Jasper Morrison, Ron Arad and the Milan studio De Lucchi. In 1993 he founded his own "Studio Aisslinger" in Berlin. He sits on various design juries and boards of trustees.
