Laura Straßer has designed the porcelain lamp ”Von Ribbeck” for Karakter - a lamp which takes its inspiration from a poem, a region and a grandmother. 


Throughout her childhood and adulthood Laura Straßer has been fascinated and drawn to the German poet ”Von Ribbeck auf Ribbeck im Haveland” written by Theodor Fontane. The story revolves around Von Ribbeck who gives pears from his tree to the children in his village even in his afterlife, where a pear tree grows at his churchyard. Theodor Fontane originates from the same region as Laura Straßer’s grandmother.
