Stefan Heiliger

In 1996, Leolux presented its first electrically adjustable piece of furniture, designed by Stefan Heiliger. Danaïde was a reclining island from which a part beneath the seat could be folded out in order to turn it into a “normal” sofa. Leolux later worked this idea into a number of other pieces of furniture. From his widely differing shapes arise small puzzles, round shapes that grip together, constructed simply from a few lines. We can see this method again in the rocking chair Canguro from 2004. Stefan Heiliger holds a professorship at the College for Design in Offenbach.
