ClassiCon Plissée Pendant Lamp
Made of mouth-blown opal glass, the Plissée lampshade balances in the air like a delicate balloon of light. The elaborately pleated structure is handcrafted in a traditional Italian manufactory, lending the luminaire its soft, almost textile look. To a certain extent, Sebastian Herkner’s design references the famous paper lanterns from Japan and the lighting design by Isamu Noguchi.
The glass shade of Plissée is frosted white on both the interior and exterior surface, creating a pleasant ambient light and also a light cone directed downwards. Two metal rings made of lacquered aluminium – optionally in black, bronze or brass – are attached to the upper bracket and to the lower opening
Hand-blown glass turns into a sensually weightless balloon of light.

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.
