Sanet Fau Stegmann is a multi-disciplinary designer. Qualified as an Interior Architect, she is co-founder of design studio, Kassa Studio. Described as a design generalist, she does not limit herself to one domain of design but rather crosses and connects various interests. This conscious exploration of overlapping design spheres informs and enriches her approach and design style. She shares her research and interest further as a part-time art and design lecturer in Paris.

Her work encompasses a wide spectrum of 'scale', from spatial to detail. She is interested in the co-influences of culture, community and context and how these manifest in spaces and objects.

Her collaborative work has been displayed at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Saatchi & Saatchi in London, and the Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa) in Cape Town.
