Herkner, who had a long-standing partnership with the German brand, presented a Mira collection for the first time at the furniture fair in Paris. The coffee table and the cup consists of two geometric shapes — a cuboid, which forms the basis for the hemisphere, creating the top.
The brand was described as a “playful and brutalist”, ceramic pieces are presented in blue, gray, pink and yellow colors. The table is there of three sizes, while the cup comes in just as a small and large.
For the brand collection of the Spring-Summer 2017, Herkner also expanded on its existing font collection – adding three glass ceramic table.
Oda Collection, consisting of handblown glass lamps propped on delicate steel frames, also received a new updated version in the eggplant color. New Pulpo collection launched at Maison & Objet, which began in Paris on January 20 and ended on January 24.
Oda provides a reservoir of light. Oda is a huge floor lamp for the living room – next to one’s sofa or an armchair. The purpose of the designer was to create the volume, or even a balloon full of light. The design is inspired by the amazing pictures of water towers taken by German photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher. Simple and elegant metal structure balancing a mouthblown tinted glass globe. Three glass colors of opal, gray and amber are also there.
