Professional Experience/Clients

Sanet Fau Stegmann is co-founder of design studio, Kassa Studio and creative head of Studio Sanet. Before that, she was co-founder/designer at Studium design office (2015-2017) and Interior designer at Tonic Design (2011-2014). Sanet does not limit herself to one domain of design but rather crosses and connects various interests, with a dedication to foster connections between different creative worlds is a demonstration for design’s transformative power. This conscious exploration of overlapping design spheres informs and enriches her approach and design style — a methodology she also imparts as an art and design lecturer. She is interested in the co-influences of culture, community and context, and how these manifest in spaces, surfaces & objects. Sanet’s commitment to holistic design solutions is exemplified by her notable experience working with clients from various walks of life. From collaborating with weavers in rural areas, where she embraced traditional craftsmanship and local artistry, to high-end textile work in the Netherlands, this diverse range of experiences has enabled her to incorporate this knowledge into her projects, adding depth and richness to her design work.
