About

Hello!

I am Franziska Bernadette, the creator and artist behind the Karlsruhe-based label Bernadette De-sign. During my accessory design studies I discovered the beauty of basket weaving crafts which influenced my work in making unique special braided lights. My artistic practice is inspired by natures characteristics like birds nests, roots and interlocking branches.

Bernadette

Bernadette stands for natural, minimal and unique design. I try to break free from traditional, rigidly woven weaving techniques to reinterpret and reinvent them. I braid very intuitively, resulting in spontaneous, organic weaving works. Bernadette is an interface between design and art where sculptural art peaces are used as functional everyday objects. Shapes and lines transforme every braiding work into a unique luminaire.

Philosophy

Design is creating a unique product by combining the functional object with the art object. In doing so, I distance myself from the throwaway society and the fast, cheap and short-term consumption. Therefore it is also of great importance to me to use na-tural raw materials that are robust, sustainable, longlasting and biodegradable. My peaces are made for those who love craftsmanship and are not only interested in the process of creation but also appreciate a long-lasting unique product. Bernadette stands for Slow Interior. Each rattan lamp is a unique piece and is made with precise handwork. Braiding takes time and requires a lot of patience and concentration. It is a very meditative practice where thoughts and mindfulness can focus on what is truly essential.

Lamp

With my minimalist, scandinavian style lights I would like to add some cozy and unique athmosphere to your home. Whether ceiling, hanging or wall lamps, with the vintage light bulbs used, they all radiate a warm and cozy light and beautiful plays of shadow are projected onto the wall. The sculptural lamps can be easily combined with other interior styles and are a great special eye-catcher in every apartment.

Would you like a personal creation for your home? Maybe you just have a question or are interested in a cooperation? Feel free to write me a message! I would love to hear from you!
