Sebastian Herkner's "balloon full of light" hovers elegantly atop a desk or sideboard. Each hand-blown glass "balloon" bears the characteristic tiny bubbles, streaks and variations one would expect from an individually crafted piece. The powder-coated steel base structure references the renowned photo series of industrial water towers by German couple Bernd and Hilla Becher. The pair dubbed them "anonymous sculptures." Yet Sebastian's design is hardly nondescript. His visually striking lamp series is achieved with rising German brand Pulpo, which makes a point of honoring the tradition of artisan craftsmanship within it modern point of view.
