Pascal Hien

 Back to fellows

In his concepts, the Munich- and Berlin-based furniture designer Pascal Hien surprises with sweeping and expansive forms, original ideas and eclectic design.

After studio and residency experiences in France and Italy, he is currently working for Steelcase Inc. He collaborates as a creative consultant with brands amongst product, interior and fashion design. His recent activity has led him towards user oriented industrial design while pursuing to work with artisans in limited editions. He believes that „the diversity between craft and modern manufacturing can coexist within contemporary design“. For Hien, design is only meaningful when it impacts and improves people’s daily routines. His commitment to designing is a circular, honest and socially responsible approach. Driven by a curious and optimistic design method, his work wanders between function, confrontation and elegance.
