Justus Kolberg

Justus Kolberg, designer of Senator's new Circo and Ecoflex chairs, is passionate about developing chairs. "The possible variations when designing a chair are huge. This fact is what makes every architect dream of one day developing a chair."

For Justus, chairs have somewhat of a "human dimension;" they are very important because they accompany us throughout our daily lives; we should feel comfortable with them.

Kolberg's innovative designs made waves in the industry (working for Castelli, Bene, Wilkhahn, Renz, Kusch, Garpa, Howe, Tecno, and Allermuir to name a few). He has received such high-calibre prizes as: the IF Hannover Product Design Award; the Red Dot des Design Centrum NRW; the IDEA -Gold Industrial Design Excellence Award (USA); and the Japanese Good Design Award.
