Studio Farn
Multidisciplinary Design

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.
