Mainkai, or Main River Quay in English, is the riverside boulevard in Frankfurt, Germany, close to where designer Sebastian Herkner grew up and still calls home today. The spherical fishing floats and mooring buoys that bob along the river with an ethereal glow at night inspired the Mainkai's lamps' design.
Mainkai is made by craftsmen in Germany not far from the boulevard it is named after. The lamp’s integrated button on the top stem dims the glow of its hand-blown glass globes up and down seamlessly as the tide. The LED light has a medium colour temperature of 2700K. The base in available in Nero Marquina marble or honed Travertine.
