SThe son of farmers,Matthias Scherzingerhas a special and profound relationship with nature. Growing up in the southwest of the country, he discoveredhis passion for materials, especially wood, which became his trademark. He created his owns design studio called "Freudwerk" in his native forest.
His native region inspires him. He remembers sensations, discoveries and impressions. Matthias offers a simple and honest vision of the object and furniture. Straight and pure lines recall the codes of modern and minimalist aesthetics where the wood itself is emphasised. It blendsperfectlywith tradition and technology, whilerespecting the materials and alwaysbringing us back to the essential, to its values. It'salmost a philosophylesson.
