Ode vase, designed by Sebastian Herkner
With clear and straight geometric lines but also some subtle details, the Ode vase series from star designer Sebastian Herkner draws the full attention of the beholder to the delicate nature of the porcelain. The textured surface of the semi-gloss vase body is broken by a lustrous ring of porcelain, decorated with golden ornamental elements that hint at a hand-drawn style yet are elegant at the same time. At first glance, the design appears to have a classical style reminiscent of the columns so prevalent in the architecture of the ancient world, but look more closely and its precise workmanship reveals a thoroughly modern new piece of interior design. The vases are available in four different sizes.
