Verena Hennig is an award winning art director and designer from Germany, driven by the love of material, performance and minimalism. Hennig studied Graphic Design/Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, as well as directing at the London Film Academy.
In 2012 Hennig founded her own design studio. Studio Verena Hennig is an internationally working design company creating installations, furniture, spaces, identities, images and films for clients ranging from culture to industry. The studio strives to engage its audiences with intelligent, compelling and distinctively created design solutions.
The ROLL Collection was designed to provide a playful, innovative and engaging experience for the user. The patent pending seating consists of rotatable aluminium sticks which massage whilst sliding from left to right. ROLL Collection is more than a conventional furniture collection – the concept was to present timeless design and to feature an engaging physical interaction. The collection consists of a chair, stool and bench and is available in red, white, beige and black.
While interacting with this unique seating accommodation various muscle groups are activated which helps to relief stress and tension. The power of being able to move while sitting down is freeing and even sparks an interaction not only between the piece of furniture and its user but also between people sharing this experience. ROLL Collection unites functional craftsmanship with sophisticated design.
