WERTELOBERFELL

WertelOberfell

WertelOberfell was founded in 2007 by Gernot Oberfell and Jan Wertel. Both studied Industrial Design in Stuttgart at the State Academy of Arts, a school which is based on the Ulmer Schule and Bauhaus models.

Before the founding of their London based practice, they worked for several years in Ross Lovegrove’s Studio X, designing for international clients including: Artemide, Yamagiwa, Louis Poulsen, Moroso, Serralunga, Sony, VitrA/Turkey, Issey Miyake, and Tag Heuer. In 2010, WertelOberfell opened a second studio in Munich.  Their work ranges from furniture, lighting and industrial products, to experimental research pieces.

WertelOberfell share a strong interest in new technologies and processes and very early in their careers, discovered the possibilities of computer aided design and the idea that software is not just an everyday tool, but through experimentation, is also a source of inspiration and a vehicle for discovering new and exciting form languages. Their work combines these experiments with the logic and beauty of organic forms and the reality of product design: the right use of materials, production processes, ergonomics and functionality.
