Pulpo: functional and dynamic products for the home
Pulpo, a German based brand, produces a variety of products for the home, including furniture and lighting, all made in Europe. Pulpo is devoted to functionality, using dynamic materials and high quality craftsmanship for a successful formula. The brand works in close collaboration with international designers for unique products made with diligence.
Sebastian Herkner is a young product designer based in Offenbach. He creates furniture, lighting and installations, often combining traditional craftsmanship with contemporary techniques. Herkner develops concepts and artefacts with strong cultural and social influences. He has already won numerous awards, including Red Dot Award for his 2010 ‘Bell Table’ for ClassiCon. Herkner has been designing for Pulpo since he was a student and the two are still bound in a close creative friendship.
Inspiration lies everywhere for Kai Linke. Studio Kai Linke, was founded in 2009 and from here he designs lighting and furniture for a number of international manufacturers, as well as objects for public places, exhibitions and interior design. From the designer's travels, to flea market visits, to nature. Every encounter presents an opportunity to collect and convert ideas into designs that range between the serious and fun or symbolism and functionality.
'Container' is a decorative jar with a gentle twist: silvered and tinted glass. The transformative effect is created by injecting a hint of liquid silver into the glass as it is being hand-blown using traditional Bohemian glassmaking techniques. Bubbles, streaks and other variations in size and colour are part of handmade production processes, and not defects in the design or production. The result is a prismatic finish as the reflective surface of the jar takes on the colours of its environment. With its poppy red lid, this low silver-coloured 'Container' can be used to hold small items and trinkets, remove the lid and the double-walled vessel becomes a vase.
This ‘Container’ collection has curved forms, where structures are soft yet bold, from shimmering golds and black to silvered fuchsia. Whether you use them to display a bouquet of flowers, or just as a keepsake these containers will add a touch of glamour to your everyday.
Kai Linke's animal statuette beckons with its rough edges and soft glow, playful and full of curiosity. Each animal is carved by hand using only a paper figurine as a guide, and presents a unique and multifaceted character. Over the course of time the animal will develop a natural patina, a testament to both the richness and complexity of the high quality bronze used.
