Besides the design of exhibition and fair presentations, he focuses on the design of products of everyday use. He is influenced by observing people and their activities. In this context, his view beyond his domain, aimed at achieving an added value for users, is of major importance. Sebastian Herkner is not much influenced by consumer trends and current directions, but by a mix of simple techniques and traditional materials in connection with the mechanical principle and practicality. In the spring of 2010, his Bell-Table, for which he won the RED DOT 2010 award, was introduced in New York in the collection of the Spanish manufacturer ABR. In 2011, Sebastian is nominated for the Newcomer Designer of Germany award.
