" There are many ways an object can make you smile. Familiarity, surprise, beauty, satisfaction, pride, simplicity, humour or wonder. If an object can stimulate a smile whilst or even because of performing its function, it is well designed."

Born in 1966, Sebastian Bergne lives and works in London and Bologna. His work is characterised more by his approach than by a formal signature. There is a pursuit of innovation in his work that comes from a delicate combination of cultural reference, humour, functional reevaluation, and a close contact with materials and manufacturing technology. Each project is a new beginning...

He studied Industrial Design from 1985-8 at the Central School of Art and Design (London) and then at the Royal College of Art (London), graduating in 1990 with distinction.

The studio was established in 1990 and has since collaborated with many internationally renowned manufacturers of consumer products and furniture. This work has been widely published, exhibited, included in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Design Museum (London) and honoured with numerous international design awards.

Throughout his career, Sebastian Bergne has regularly contributed to graduate and postgraduate design education in respected institutions including the Royal College of Art in London, Ecal Lausanne and the Free University of Bolzano (Italy).
