Sebastian Menschhorn

The Viennese graphic artist and product designer Sebastian Menschhorn was born in 1971 and studied from 1990 to 1996 with Paolo Piva and Toshiyoki Kita at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Menschhorn translates styles, forms and functions into contemporary and timeless design. In his designs, the focus is less on personal handwriting than on the attempt to “capture the essence of the respective commissioned product, analyze it and bundle it in the design”. The transfer of two-dimensional, graphic approaches to three-dimensional object designs is typical of Menschhorn's work. This is also reflected in his collection of flowers of life designed for Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg.
