Designer Sebastian Herkner loves the skilful interplay of materials, surfaces and production techniques. He has succeeded in creating a design that is particularly captivating in this respect with the Falda vase developed for the Rosenthal studio-line.
The simple, bulbous vase made from biscuit porcelain with its velvety surface and pleated, topquality collar with a golden titanium coating is reminiscent of Art Deco objects.
However, the appearance of the collar is a digital interpretation of this time thanks to its precise folding. The collar surrounds and embellishes the floral arrangement in an unusual way.

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.
