2015 was Sebastian Herkner’s year. The internationally esteemed German designer — heralded for his inspired use of color, texture and material — took home six international accolades for his extraordinary work in the past year alone, including the EDIDA Elle Decoration International Design Award for Best International Newcomer. Catching our eye in 2016? His inviting Ala Armchair for La Cividina.
Known for his eye for detail and contextual ingenuity, Herkner transforms everyday objects into works of art for contemporary living — a feat that is well-evidenced by the Ala Armchair. Laid-back and livable yet meticulous in both design and construction, this polished yet practical piece is the ideal amalgam of form and function.
Suitable for residences and contract use alike, the Ala Armchair is available in a wide variety of alluring upholstery hues in both leather and fabric, with a frame in either ash or tubular metal. Part of the extraordinary Ala seating collection, the Ala Armchair was recently featured in Wallpaper*, which noted its ability to “gracefully blend sinuous lines with geometric compositions.”
