The WertelOberfell was established in 2007 by Gernot Oberfell (1975) and Jan Wertel (1976). Both of them studied Industrial Design at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design. The studio has been located in London and Munich. At the time, they both worked for the Ross Lovegrove Studio for several years. The scope of their design work is very broad. They have worked for brands such as Sony, Yamagiwa, MGX by Materialise, Iker, BN Office Solution, DuPont Corian, Nowy Styl, Braun and others. Studio WertelOberfell also won prestigious awards (among others:Red Dot, Must Have, 3D Pioneers Challenge, Focus Open). Some of their works have been exhibited in museums across the world and are part of permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Jan and Gernot’s work is a combination of logic and the perfection of organic forms. They make optimum use of the qualities of materials, production processes, and ergonomics.
