Herman Studio has existed since 2011, where we since the beginning have been working with external partners along with running our own design and manufacturing company Herman Cph. I January 2016 ferm Living took over the production of the design series of Herman Cph. This collaboration was based on a desire to explore and develop our creativity more, plus put all our effort into what we are passionate about.
Herman Studio is a design studio focusing on furniture and interior design as well as the history and identity that surround it. We are constantly exploring new designs and quirky ideas that occur in an iterative process between sketches, models and prototypes. Our workshop is a natural part of the studio since we constantly alternates between drawings and models in the production of furniture. This working method has proven to be great for us as the working methods in combination promotes the development and creativity.
Having to devise and develop a new and original design is something we love to have on the drawing board. We use our experience from our previous Design and Production Company from which we have become familiar with all the facets that needs be considered in the whole process. Present collaborators include ferm Living, Skagerak Denmark and Andersen Furniture.
Originality is something we aspire to; there must be room for surprises and for something that has not been seen before. Quality exists in originality; consideration for sustainability and in the constant search for the most suitable materials for each project. Contrasts bring originality; Especially the contrast between the masculine and feminine expression is reflected in our work. A contrast that creates synergy between the elegant and the powerful. Holistic design follows us in every design process; We think all our solutions all 360º: from understanding the target group and defining the concept to the final end product. See more

My great passion for design is, in addition to aesthetics especially about good workmanship and the use of materials. I am deeply fascinated by the production methods and thinking through a new product from raw material to the end product. This is why good design for me, is about the entire manufacturing method and the aesthetics all coming together in order to achieve the greatest possible eligibility.
Hands-on; I master not only drawing and being creative with a pencil. With a background of craftsmanship and a workshop as a natural part of the studio, I also understand craftsmanship and manufacturing processes.

For me, design is about getting to the core of what makes the project unique and then emphasizing it. Telling the story. Moreover, I believe it is essential to view the design from many angles, granting it a broad integrated look. This is where the cooperation between different disciplines becomes immensely important.
Framing, concept development, textiles, colors and graphics.
