The SOFT SIDE of Cappellini
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.
