Körner is an award-winning designer working at the convergence of architecture, product and fashion design with a focus in additive manufacturing and robotic technology. Her work has been featured in the National Geographic Magazine, at the Venice Biennale, Paris Haute Couture and institutions such as the FRAC Centre in Orleans, the Art Institute of Chicago, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The constantly intriguing aspect of Köerner’s work is the embodiment of a beautiful organic aesthetic. Born in Salzburg, Austria, Köerner is founder of JK Design GmbH, specializing in digital design for 3D-Printing.

Köerner has held previous academic appointments at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Lund University in Sweden and the Architectural Association Visiting School in France and Jordan.e
