The Collar Pendant is a series of pendant lights where special attention has been paid on its details.
The pendant is made of mouth-blown glass and crafted in line with old traditional techniques that gives every lamp its unique and iconic look. Its strong character is achieved by the combination of the soft rounded glass, with a matte surface, and a steel "collar", used as a reflector, that together perfectly diffuses a warm light that sets just the right lighting atmosphere.
The lamp looks great as a single feature alone over a table, but by mixing colours and large and small Collar Pendants, it gives possibilities for strong personal and playful installations.
Recommended light source: halogen light bulb, 28W.
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). While already focusing on designing objects and furniture by merging various cultural contexts, Herkner combined new technologies with traditional craftmanship. This was 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 hiw own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as Moroso, ClassiCon, Rosentahl, Very Wood, GUBI and Pulpo, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums.
