"Reflecting about the act of sitting and ist very requirements is what Prof. Stefan Heiliger placed into the heart of his creative mind. His workpieces embody a maximum of calculated comfort; utmost ease and cosiness, with a clear pragmatic eye on cost. With Heiliger, free forms are not designed for the galleries and museums, but for the market." – Prof. Dr.Volker Fischer
