Spotlight On: Sternzeit Design

This month, the spotlight is on the brand behind our gorgeous mid-century, Bauhaus seating: Sternzeit Design. 

Sternzeit Design, was founded in Berlin in 2010 by Markus Paulke. A small, family run business; their creative mid-century designs, renowned for their extensive range of colours and amazing quality, have flourished into a strong global brand that recently featured on the super popular Netflix show, The Queen's Gambit.

This set was designed by Production Designer Uli Hanisch and features the beautiful Retrostar Chair - this, and more of the amazing sets from the show can be viewed at his website here

The Inspiration

When asked what inspires his designs, Markus tells us that he's inspired by designers such as Charles & Ray Eames who created the infamous Eames Lounge Chair, Arne Jacobsen, creator of The Egg Chair as well as architects like John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright.

You can really see these influences reflected in the designs of The Retrostar Chair and Lounger with the use of natural wood arms supporting the relaxed seating position.

We also love the design of the Supernova, minimalist and cubic, and available in soft velvet in a range of dreamy colours.
