The “Bell Table” (manufacturer: ClassiCon) by Sebastian Herkner is about to turn our perceptual habits on their head, using the lightweight, fragile material of glass as base for a metal top that seems to float above it.

Hand-blown in the traditional manner using a wooden mould, the transparent tinted glass base asserts a sculptural presence in space, contrasting intriguingly with the solid brass frame on top while also forming with it a harmonious unit recalling the curving silhouette of a bell.

With its appealing reflective surfaces and contrasting materials, the side table adds a distinctive touch to domestic interiors. Each table is handmade, meaning that small bubbles or bumps in the glass are not flaws but rather desirable characteristics marking each piece as unique.

The glass base in available in the colours amethyst violet, emerald green and topaz yellow, the brass top frame has a round tabletop of black-painted crystal glass.
