Werner Aisslinger is a German designer with a diverse port­fo­lio known for his inno­v­a­tive use of mate­ri­als and linking tech­nolo­gies with emotions. Born in Nördlin­gen, Germany, in 1964, he studied indus­trial design at the Hochschule der Künste (HdK) in Berlin. Between 1989 – 92 he worked as a free­lancer for famed design­ers Ron Arad and Jasper Morri­son. In 1993, Werner founded his office in Berlin, empha­siz­ing product design, design concepts, and brand archi­tec­ture. In partic­u­lar, his approach revolves around using the latest tech­nolo­gies and has helped intro­duce new mate­ri­als and tech­niques to the world of product design. For example, his Juli chair” for Cappellini was the first item of furni­ture to use a new type of foam called inte­gral polyurethane foam.” It became the first German chair design selected as a perma­nent exhibit at the MoMA in New York in 1964.
