Johannes Steinbauer

Driven by his roots in craftsmanship, Johannes Steinbauer Office for Design is developing furniture that strive for an efficient, reduced, almost naive design language. Johannes Steinbauer grew up in the countryside, in a household of 4th-generation carpenters. Since he was tied by the fascination of craftsmanship, he followed his family tradition with a training as a cabinetmaker.


At the age of 19 he worked for Tetrimäki Furniture Vision, a carpentry workshop in Finland. In the production of elaborate art nouveau furniture in small series, he learned to approach projects with great precision and patience. After working in his profession for several years and receiving his master certificate he went to study industrial design at Hochschule für Gestaltung in Schwäbisch-Gmünd.


From 2011 to 2012 he worked for Studio Neuland in Munich, on projects for international clients like Nils Holger Moorman, MDF-Italia, Kristalia, Bulthaup and Freifrau. In 2012 he founded his own studio, wich is located in an old workshop. Johannes Steinbauer is working with an intuitive approach, wich is still led by his fascination for craftsmanship. He always strives for an efficient, reduced, almost naive solution that directs to a strong characteristic design language.  Johannes Steinbauer is working on furniture, accessories and lights for international clients like Authentics, Rolf Benz and Softline.




The modern wall wardrobe made of solid ash impresses with a timeless, reduced design and versatile utility options. The interplay of the striking squared timbers and the soft-acting round hook creates an exciting contrast. Jackets, hats, bags and co. find their place in a small space on the shapely round rods and help to keep things organized. For different needs and spaces there is the LINE UP wardrobe with three or five hooks. For example, several coat racks can be mounted side by side in a long corridor and provide enough hooks for many items of clothing. In a second row superimposed, they are ideal for the whole family, because even the little ones can easily approach their belongings. Also in the bath, children, or bed -room makes the handmade LINE UP a good figure
