For this Berlin-based duo, their home and metropolitan city is a great source of inspiration for their designs. Hertel & Klarhoefer want their designs to be global, innovative but straight to the point. That is not to say that this forward thinking pair do not welcome spontaneity.
Hertel & Klarhoefer recognises that travelling to widen their horizons as well as opening themselves up to new experiences enable them to get their best design ideas. They are often inspired by materials and develop many early prototypes. They occasionally also let the strong conceptual character of their projects lead them, allowing them to experiment with various materials and forms to create their modern and fresh furniture designs.
