or Call to Order

German designer Sebas­t­ian Herkner unveils the Aarde planter collec­tion for Indi­genus, inspired by his beau­ti­ful honey­moon in South Africa. Aarde, meaning earth” in Afrikaans, encap­su­lates the myriad facets, hues, and textures encoun­tered across this diverse land.

Reflect­ing Africa’s cultural tapes­try, demo­graphic rich­ness, and ethe­real light, the Aarde collec­tion takes shape as a testa­ment to Sebas­tian’s profound journey. Each piece reveals subtle, over­lap­ping layers of varying depths, metic­u­lously designed to harness the inter­play of light and mineral essence observed in the breath­tak­ing natural land­scapes that inspired him.

The color palette of the Aarde collec­tion speaks volumes, telling the capti­vat­ing tale Sebas­t­ian yearned to convey. Earthy tones, such as deep browns, vibrant reds, and warm sand­stones, form an intrin­sic part of this narra­tive, embody­ing the raw beauty and organic essence that resonated deeply with the designer’s soul.

The Tricolore Vases for &tradition are a fantastic fusion of color, ingenuity, and artisanry. Each set is comprised of two cylindrical glass vases of different heights, each in a different color. Pair them together and you have a third color – hence the name.
