We bid farewell to Herbert Schultes
Herbert Schultes recently passed away at the age of 81. He was one of Germany’s most important designers. He received the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for his commitment to design and was honoured as a design sponsor by the German Ministry of Economics. His works are included in the permanent collection of MoMA in New York, among others.
The ‘Orbis’ lamp designed in 1994 is an important part of our collection to this day. We will remember Herbert Schultes as a humorous, generous and warm-hearted man and our longstanding friendship with him. We deeply mourn the passing of this great designer.
