Pulpo Boule High Lamp
Boule is a lighting collection for German producer Pulpo inspired by the popular outdoor game in France. Getting 10 years old this year, Pulpo is working with the studio Sebastian Herkner already for many years. Boule is the second lamp we designed for the brand, using this time various glass spheres.
We initiated also a collaboration with Rosenthal, the well-known porcelain manufacturer from Bavaria, who is responsible for the production of the bases of Boule.
Both material together, the mouth-blown glass and the casted porcelain gives to the design an sophisticated and elegant attitude.
Hand blown glass corpus with base in tube Steel (Ø8mm).
- Size Description
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.
