Werner Aisslinger Bio Fact sheet of designer Werner
werNer AissLingEr
The works of the designer Werner Aisslinger (born 1964) cover the spectrum
of experimental, artistic approaches, including industrial design and
architecture. He delights in making use of the latest technologies and has
helped introduce new materials and techniques to the world of product
design like in his unique gel furniture with the collection “Soft Cell“ and
the chaise “Soft“ for Zanotta in 2000. The “Juli chair“ (Cappellini) was
the first furniture item to use a new type of foam, polyurethane integral
foam, and became the first German chair design to be selected as a
permanent exhibit at the MoMA in New York since 1964. In 2012 he created
the “Hemp chair“ with Basf and Moroso – the first ever biocomposite
monobloc chair. In the process he has created striking designs and received
awards from all over the world — from Milan's Compasso d'Oro to the Design
Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Red Dot Award the FX Award in
the UK and the American Interior Design Award. Werner Aisslinger‘s
“Loftcube“ project became one of the most discussed modular and
transportable housing projects within the last years. His work is exhibited
in the permanent collections of international museums such as the Museum of
Modern Art (MoMA) and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the French Fonds
National d‘Art Contemporain in Paris, the Victora & Albert Museum in
London, the Museum Neue Sammlung in Munich, and the Vitra Design Museum in
Weil, Germany.
Recent work includes a number of furniture design projects for Vitra,
Foscarini and Moroso; product designs for Haier and Canon, as well as
25hours Hotel Bikini (Berlin, 2014). In 2013 Werner Aisslinger opened
first soloshow called “Home of the future“ in the Berlin based museum
am Waldsee. In 2014 he was awarded the prestigious AW Designer of the
Award in Cologne. Werner Aisslinger lives and works in Berlin.
