Sebastian Bergne

Born in 1966, Sebastian Bergne’s work is characterised by his approach more than by a formal signature. His projects are innovative but familiar, simple yet clever, and always a pleasure to use. 

He studied Industrial Design from 1985 to 1988 at the Central School of Art and Design, London, and then at the Royal College of Art, London, graduating with distinction in 1990. 

His London studio was established in 1990, with a second in Bologna between 2000 and 2007. He collaborates 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 in New York and the Design Museum in London, and has been honoured with numerous international design awards.


Throughout his career, Sebastian Bergne has regularly contributed to graduate and postgraduate design education in respected institutions such as the Royal College of Art, the University of Venice, and ECAL Lausanne.

Design is the creation of the material world around us, the process by which everything can be made beautiful, useful, meaningful, or simply a joy to use.
