RORO Collection/Design: Sebastian Herkner
Fortitude, prosperity and fortune – the pig has always been seen as an ancient and symbolic animal. For the 100th birthday of Philip #Rosenthal (1916–2001), designer Sebastian Herkner has created the minimalist #design pieces RORO, based on the most striking part of a pig – the snout. The inspiration for the pieces was Rosenthal's pet pig RORO, for whom in 1967 Philip #Rosenthal wanted to build a sty in Bauhaus style. The pig sty was designed by none other than architect Walter Gropius after he lost a bet.
Today, Herkner's pieces are a wonderful tribute to the legendary friendship between two great designers. They also represent the exact symbolic attributes associated with the pig. As a symbol of luck, the 9-centimetre-high figure that fits into the palm of your hand is a perfect gift, and the 17-centimetre object represents energy and strength. The figures are available in black, white and rosé.
