LUKAS HEINTSCHEL DESIGN
by Lukas Heintschel x Carel Woodworks
“The heron-collection combines timeless elegance with a calm, iconic shape.
All pieces of the collection are made of solid oak. This heavy-seeming material is contrasted by a flowing, almost organic design language that underlines the naturalness of the material and gives the pieces a light, sublime appearance. Moreover, the wood used for the pieces is cut in a
sustainable and responsible way.
The combination of timeless design, sustainable forestry and high-end craftsmanship results in a collection of contemporary heirlooms with a sublime, minimalistic elegance.
The collection is named after the bird „heron“ as it embodies the sublime, light elegance, flowing shape and strong connection to nature that makes this furniture collection so special.
Besides the natural oak finish, all pieces are also available in open-pore, acrylic lacquer finishes.”
Lukas Heintschel (*1995) is an award-winning designer currently based in Munich, Germany. Shortly after finishing his studies in Industrial- & Product-Design at Munich University of Applied Sciences he founded his own design studio Lukas Heintschel Design.
His works have been awarded multiple times and exhibited at various international design events such as the Milan
Design Week or the Ambiente Talents Exhibition.
He also co-founded the lighting brand Neozoon and is a jury member of the LUXI Design Award.
His designs aim to give people a little smile in their day to day life. They follow the cradle-to-cradle approach and combine playful details and usability concepts
with calm, iconic shapes.
The heron-table is both perfect for a private home as well as for professional spaces.
Its carved, solid oak tabletop gives it a light, sublime appearance and the contour of the legs resembles the flowing lines of the heron-chair’s backrest or
the legs of the heron-sideboard.
Its overall, minimal appearance gets a special twist by the contrast of its round tabletop and its legs, which have an angular but also flowing appearance.
The heron-table is a piece of furniture that fits every kind of space while also adding something special.
As the centerpiece of the collection, the heron-chair combines a classic, timeless aesthetic with a contemporary minimalism.
Its flowing curves give this solid oak chair a light and sublime appearance and the concave carved seat and backrest offer a particular high seating comfort. Moreover, it’s also available in a cushioned version, upholstered with up-cycled fabrics.
The strong combination of an elegant, minimal design, sustainable forestry, dedicated craftsmanship and functionality make this high end solid oak chair one of a kind and a perfect fit for almost every project or home.
Besides the natural oak finish, all pieces are also available in open-pore, acrylic lacquer finishes.
This solid oak credenza is part of the heron-collection and focuses on elegant minimalism combined with a distinct, calm presence. Its concavely carved top side seems to flow into the wall behind it and gives it an iconic, easily recognizable appearance.
Moreover, the edge in the front serves as a handle to open the cabinet. This results in a design that is both calm and present, minimal and extraordinary.
Furthermore, the design of the cabinet enables you to put several pieces of furniture next to each other. The heron-sideboard gives you both the opportunity to stage your favourite objects on top of it while also offering plenty of storage space inside: a strong combination of utility and elegant design.
The wood is cut in a responsible manner and like the other pieces of furniture in this collection, this one is available in natural oak as well as in different open-pore acrylic lacquer finishes.
