Studio Farn is a design studio founded by product designer Sophie von Gebhardi and graphic designer Markus Lange 2014 in Leipzig. Farn (en: fern) stands, as a prehistoric plant, for an old natural power which brings an enlightening beauty to shadowy places. Both of us are dedicated designers and observers, we are focused on research, aesthetic, experiment, sustainability and collaboration. We work multidisciplinary in the fields of art and design for profit and non-profit clients and self initiated projects. We like to work with our diverse experiences and skills collaboratively across various media, techniques and materials focusing on print, identity, exhibition, interactive work, fashion, design objects, furniture and interior design.
