Named after the French word for ‘groove,’ Sillon’s furrowed frame is inspired by the Art Deco movement. Designed by Sebastian Herkner for &Tradition, the sleek and sophisticated design is offered in three sizes, 460, 660 or 960 mm in diameter, and with the choice of a brass or chrome frame. Group together or hang separately.
It took the German designer Sebastian Herkner only a few years to convince the whole design scene of his talent with his unusual material mixes and timeless shapes, always managing to communicate an impression of sensibility. Today, he is contributing to the collections of the most important design houses worldwide and has won numerous awards for his design.
When designing everyday objects, Sebastian Herkner is influenced by his observations of people and their actions. In this context it is important to look beyond your own disciplines in order to achieve a value-added for the user. Herkner is not so much influenced by trends or current consumer criteria, because what interests him is a collage of simple techniques and traditional materials coupled with a simple mechanical principle and an unambiguous function. His idea of sustainability consists of employing traditional manufacturing techniques and their unique character. He then combines and interprets this by employing new technologies and finishing methods.
