Ecrin Large 7.5" Lidded Glass Box by Sebastian Herkner for Nude

This collection is inspired by the Earth Pyramids of Ritten, an impressive natural monument in South Tyrol. The idea of balancing a round stone on the top of another volume fascinated Sebastian Herkner, and inspired him to design Ecrin, a collection of containers in three sizes with a stone like lid on top. These lids are smooth like river stones blown in colored glass. The bases of the containers are handmade in thick glass to contrast the lightness of the lids. It is a composition of volumes, colors and space in glass.

Colors available: Caramel or Petroleum Green

Sebastian Herkner studied product design at the Offenbach University of Art and Design, focusing his studies on designing objects and furniture merging various cultural contexts, combining new technologies with traditional craftsmanship in order to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the materials and draw renewed attention to small details. While still a student, Herkner did an internship with Stella McCartney in London, which helped to hone his feeling for materials, colors, structures and textures.

Since founding his own design studio in Offenbach am Main in 2006, he has designed products for manufacturers such as Cappellini, ClassiCon, Dedon, Fontana Arte, Moroso, Pulpo, Thonet and Wittmann, as well as working on interior design projects and for exhibitions and museums.
