About us

 The World of Interior Design is the World we live in

No room is like any other and certainly no person either. That is why we don’t simply build rooms, but use observations of peoples living and application habits as well as findings on basis of the limbic system in our work. This way room designs and tailor-made interiors are created, which combine all the things that define us: A puristic sense of aesthetics, a passion for technology and the highest standards for quality in the craftsmanship and ourselves.

Because good design knows no borders

Everywhere in the world there are people with a high standard of design when it comes to their living environment. Knowing this makes us very happy, as it has allowed us to realize multiple projects in a wide variety places all over the world. In western and eastern Europe, in the vibrant metropolis of London, Zurich, Madrid, Vienna, on Portugal’s southern coast Algarve as well as in Nigerias capital Lagos. Both private clients as well as companies such as LVMH, Dior,  Bilfinger, Steigenberger Hotel Group AG, Thai Airways, Kenzo, Givenchy, Vila Vital Hotel Group, Pearls of Kuwait Real Estate Company, Capella Hotel Group etc. put trust in our experience and empathie. 

The Team at your side

Dipl. Ing. Norbert E. Kern

Interior Architect and Light design specialist

For over 30 years my 12-strong team and I have been developing individual design solutions for people of the highest aesthetical standards. During this time my work has been decorated with the much sought after Interior Innovation Award multiple times as well as various other prizes. The foundation of this success has on many occasion been my spacial conceptions on basis of the limbic system and my passion for light design. Currently I am inspired by then possibilities of combining traditional craftsmanship with modern interior design with the help of new, digital technologies such as Apps and Connected Home. Beside my personal interest in innovation concerning my field of work, I also stay up-to-date with advanced training of the AKH (The Hesse Chamber of Architects and Urban Planners) and the BDIA (The Association of German Architects) and exchange knowledge with my Colleges through these platforms.

Sabine Kober

Interior Designer

According to Schopenhauer music and architecture are closely related, he said “Architecture is frozen music”. This is why my musical studies of the Harp, church music and my conductorship at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich are perhaps the best basis for my current profession as interior designer. In music harmony and aesthetics and the interplay of different elements are also essential. Today, many years after my studies, and with many more years of experience as designer, textile designer and co-founder of KERN-DESIGN I look forward to composing the best Interiors and giving them a soul of their own. I always try to find out exactly what our customers need by using empathy and then help them develop the idea a few steps further.

Everything together seamlessly – just for you
