Timelessness and reserved simplicity characterize Christian Horner's designs. His approach to design is both strict and playful, often ironic. His designs are characterized by elegant lines and attention to detail. Christian Horner has been working for Bene for several years - his designs manage to reinterpret classic shapes and combine clear, timeless design with well-thought-out functionality.
