Normally, glass is regarded as being lightweight with sharp edges. In contrast, Sebastian Herkner’s alwa is massive and possesses gentle contours. The raw, hot, glass mass with its natural bubbles is an imprint of the structure, including the uneven, sensitive surface. So nice to touch … but also ideal for placing a variety of items.

Sebastian-Herkner-pulpo

Poetic compositions, refined shapes and delicate surfaces mark his designs: Sebastian Herkner who founded his Offenbach am Main based studio in 2006, creates furniture, lighting and textiles, as well as spaces and installations – often combining contemporary techniques with traditional craftsmanship. Without leaving out the importance of material and sensory beauty, the multifaceted designer follows a strong conceptional approach: “I transport and interpret characteristics from various contexts of society and culture, and implement them in new artefacts”, says Sebastian Herkner. Repeatedly awarded, the design teaches at the university, collaborates with fairs as well as museums, and works for some of the most prestigious design manufacturers of our time. pulpo got to know the creative mind during various international design shows, as he was still a student. Today, the designer and the house of design are bound by a close and friendly relationship, allowing a dynamic exchange when playing creative ping-pong over ideas or figuring out the ideal design language for pulpo.
