Moira for Fürstenberg (2018)
Porcelain has always played a major role in how we create our homes. With its new Moira lighting series by Sebastian Herkner, Fürstenberg demonstrates the changeability of the unique material and the potential of porcelain to capture the mood of the time in ever new forms, beyond the sphere of dining. Moira combines modern interior design with traditional craftsmanship.
“Porcelain is like a filter. It creates a special atmosphere with the light” is how Sebastian Herkner describes the special fascination of porcelain. The inspiration for the Moira lighting series came to the much-in-demand German product designer during a visit to Porzellanmanufaktur Fürstenberg where he observed how light behaves on fine, unglazed porcelain. It is almost translucent and the light which shines through it is particularly warm and soft. The Moira lighting series consists of a pendant lamp in three different lengths, a table lamp with two light sources and a floor lamp with six light sources. The central design element of all the lamps is the light cup produced by Porzellanmanufaktur Fürstenberg.
