Von Ribbeck

Laura Straßer, 2009


Inspired by a German poem written in the late nineteenth century, the initial design for the Von Ribbeck light was inspired by the shape of a pear. Designer Laura Straßer felt a deep connection to the poem throughout her life, which tells the story of a generous man who gave the fruits of his pear tree to all of the children living in his village. This pendant suspension light is defined by a strong porcelain body and a playful, inventive shape. The shade is available in multiple colors, each exhibiting a refined elegance, allowing the lights to cater to personal tastes and styles.
