Product description

A family of round or oval tables, characterized by the sculptural form of the base, made by fitting together a thin slab of extra-clear glass and a thick perpendicular wall, the shape of which varies surprisingly with the changing of the viewer's perspective, in a play of transparencies. The material finishes of the top and base contrast
with the perfection and sheen of the glass, emphasizing the design's essential lines. Top and base in MDF with a spatulated finish made by craft techniques using a mixture of cement and volcanic earth-based protected with special resins, pleasing to the touch and wear resistant. Extra clear tempered glass, thickness 15 mm.

Concept

A table with two souls, visually light but imposing in its structure, which surprises with the varying of its shape as the viewer’s perspective changes, in a masterly play of transparencies that enhances the essential lines of the design and the versatility of the material. The base, sculptural yet soft in shape, is formed by a material interlocking between a thin transparent sheet and a thick monolith that supports the round or oval wooden top, in chromatic continuity with the base.
GIANO’s duality emerges even more clearly and incisively in the material contrast that represents a figurative passage between the sky and the earth: from the purity of the extra-clear tempered glass to the tactile spatulated finish of the wood of the base and the top, handmade Volcanic earth-based cement coating in Lipari White, Vesuvio Brown or Etna Grey colors and protected by a surface finish with special resins that make it pleasing to the touch and wear resistant. Just like Janus, the mythological god who inspired it, this table represents a vision of both past and future, the meeting point between the purity of the lines and the formal synthesis of shapes with the experimentation with materials and finishes, two basic and recurring elements in Acerbis’s design thinking.
