ClassiCon Plissée Floor Lamp
With his Bell Table design, which kicked off his cooperation with ClassiCon in 2012 and was the designer’s first step towards international recognition, Sebastian Herkner turned our usual perception of materials upside down. Herkner once again achieves this effect in a fascinating way with his Plissée Floor Lamp: 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 – and, not least through this combination, carries the unmistakable signature of Sebastian Herkner.

Sebastian Herkner was born in 1981 in Bad Mergentheim. He studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main (Offenbach University of Art and Design), already focusing during his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details. Whilst still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, colours, structures and textures. Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as De Vorm, Moroso and nanoo, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums. Since 2007 he has taught several courses at HfG Offenbach am Main as visiting lecturer.
