Exhibition

25 self produced objects over 25yrs, exhibited in the studio in which many were created. Including the new Drop jug and Cubit beer glass, the relaunched Ring Soap, Colour Nativity and the celebrated Lamp Shade. The backdrop to the exhibition will be Sebastian's recent Plane shelving for Teebooks.

Designer Sebastian Bergne will be opening his studio during the London Design Festival to exhibit his collection of Editions in the environment in which many were created. This collection of self produced objects has been built up over 25 years. What started as a resourceful way of making simple product ideas available, has become a working method that not only allows him the freedom to operate as he pleases but also to profit differently from his creations.

Most objects are manufactured in small unlimited editions, some are produced in larger quantities, but all have Sebastian's lyrical intelligence. The presentation of 25 objects will include his new Drop jug and Cubit beer glass alongside the Colour Nativity*, relaunched Ring Soap and his celebrated Lamp Shade.**

Serving as a backdrop to the Editions will be Sebastian's Plane shelving. Recently designed for French manufacturer and online retailer Teebooks. This is the first opportunity to see this rigorously designed steel storage system in the UK as it is typically only available online.

*Included in the collection of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris
** Included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Sebastian Bergne

British Industrial designer Sebastian Bergne is renown for making everyday objects special with his essential and human approach to design.

Sebastian’s versatility allows him and his team to work in different ways. As an external Industrial design facility to international brands, as a designer and supplier of bespoke objects for restaurants, retailers and individuals or even as producer of his growing collection of personal editions.

Having graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1990, he founded his studio in the same year. His achievements have since been widely recognised with international design awards, frequent publication, exhibitions and inclusion in museum collections such as The Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Design Museum (London). His wealth of experience makes him sought after as a curator, lecturer and commentator on design.
