18/04/2019 - A blown opal glass sphere, a concave disc and a slightly curved sheet: Kontur is the new project by German designer Sebastian Herkner in his first collaboration with Vibia.

The Kontur concept was born from the desire to define new lighting scenarios starting from simple geometries. The characteristically minimal black frame, in fact, dialogues fluidly with the pure volumes of the lightshade protecting the LED’, Herkner explains.

In this way a minimal silhouette and profile interact with the black frame hosting the luminous LED source. Kontur, available as a ceiling, floor or wall lamp, combines the essential character of pure volumes with an evocative and poetical light. Herkner’s project creates new lighting scenarios to explore, their identity varying according to the selected diffuser, each one different in form and volume. Kontur by Sebastian Herckner, Vibia

In a journey of permanent dialogue, the project highlights a desire for open creativity that facilitates the collection’s use in different situations, all the while maintaining its unique and recognizable identity.

The true guiding line of the project was a study of space: everything that is illuminated by the light. In this sense, lighting has a fundamental role, because it spreads warmth in an environment, and at the same time lends vigor to the furniture within’.
