Sebastian Herkner turns our usual perception of materials upside down. The lampshade, like a sensual, weightless balloon of light, balances on a metal base.
The trick: what is reminiscent of artfully pleated textile is in reality hand-blown glass. An elaborate artisan production process enables this soft, textile-like, visual effect and hence the realisation of Herkner’s vision. A dimmable LED light source creates the individually desired level of cosiness. The design of the Plissee Floor Lamp hence unites traditional craftsmanship with an industrial component.
