Concept

Lens table and small tables were developed from a study of a clear surface offering a great feeling of depth. The result is two sheets of glass with a special film inside. The table is enclosed in a metal frame and sustained by two supports.

Like all tables and small tables in the collection, the small Lens bookcase features a back made up of two sheets of glass with a special film inside, which create a clear surface full of depth and a kaleidoscopic effect reminiscent of leadsealed glass façades in 18th century Venetian palaces. Plain glass is used on the shelves. Many are the combinations of crystal with slender frames: grey with black varnished frames, transparent with white varnished frame and bronzed with varnished bronzed frame.
