Concept and Design

The Nymph family of table lamps designed by Sebastian Herkner is inspired by the namesake female deities of Greek mythology: personifications of nature at the service of humans. Based on the notion of a gentle presence accompanying people’s daily lives, comes a blown glass lamp featuring a finely pleated shade, seemingly floating weightlessly atop the leather-covered base. A button set into the lampshade is an ode to the classic leather “button” characteristic of Poltrona Frau upholstery. When lit, the light transforms into a graceful light sculpture of sorts.
