‘I was inspired by stunning conventional coverings of ventilation shafts,’ says Sebastian Herkner. ‘I like to give new contexts to industrial and traditional elements.’ Produced by Pulpo, the collection consists of a cabinet, bench and containers, which are all made with 1-mm-thin powder-coated steel sheets.
Stability and strength are added to such a thin material through the application of diagonal bends in the objects’ surfaces. ‘The bending is a constructive requirement and also a decorative pattern that plays with reflection, shadow and light,’ says Herkner.
Tauber-Collection’s inherent versatility permits several combinations; all the elements are compatible but can also be used separately.
The IMM trade fair runs until Sunday, 22 January.
