Daniel Kern studied visual communication and industrial design at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK). In 2008/09, he was assistant curator for the exhibition ›Antibodies. Works by Fernando & Humberto Campana‹ at the Vitra Design Museum. He graduated in 2011 (with distinction) and worked as an exhibition designer, for example for Domaine de Boisbuchet (Naked Shapes) before joining the design team at the Nils Holger Moormann studio. During that time, he designed, for example, the pieces ›Klopstock‹ and ›So oder So‹. His work has already received several awards, including the Design Award from the Leinemann Stiftung für Bildung und Kunst and the Karl H. Ditze Scholarship for outstanding students. In 2013 and 2014, the German Design Council nominated him for the Newcomer of the Year Award. Since 2016, Daniel Kern has been working as an independent designer.
