The new small table by Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner, renowned for his particular sensitivity toward glass, designed a pair of small tables where the glass strength and durability are axiomatically used for developing the concept of the entire product. The Echino small table features two different sizes which are complementary, since can be placed side by side. It has three barrel-shaped legs made of three – layered blown glass available in four colour shades – smoky grey, light-blue, amber or blue – which a steel sheet top, with either natural or black nickel-satin finish, or a mirror top is placed on. The structured surface of the legs shows parallel striations which look slightly oblique and provide the unique and original look of the small tables. Steel and glass create an unusual relationship based on the contrasting of full and void, lightness and strength, above and below. A versatile item, long-lasting and strong, eco-compatible and 100% recyclable.

Materials and finishes:
Three-layered blown glass legs in the shades smoky grey, light-blue, amber or blue. Steel sheet top, 4 mm thick, with either natural or black nickel-satin finish or mirror top, 5 mm thick.
