Born in Vlotho, Westphalia, in 1952, Simon Desanta has made a name for himself in the international furniture design industry. Since 1976 he has patented over 50 furniture functions around the world with his "Industrie Design" studio. His customer portfolio includes manufacturers such as Brunner, Haworth | Comforto, Kusch & Co., and he has won countless awards for his designs. Desanta's focus is on office furniture solutions; particularly seating that takes ergonomic aspects in consideration, as well as wood and plastic technology. For Haworth | Comforto, Desanta designed two of the best-selling chair systems: System 77 and System 50. Recent collaboration between Desanta and the Haworth Design Studio produced Very – a highly sustainable seating family born out of global design and science-led comfort. Desanta lives and works in Schloss Holtfeld in Halle Westphalia.
