Product description

A modern classic as miniature: the Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner turns 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 elegant curving silhouette of a bell.
With its appealing reflective surfaces and contrasting materials, the side table adds a distinctive touch to domestic interiors. It celebrates the beauty of the materials with their colours and surfaces, along with the artisanal tradition. The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner is a masterwork of traditional hand craftsmanship. Each miniature is handmade true to scale and to the same perfection as the original.

Miniature | 1:5 scale. Hand-blown glass base in choice of colours with metal top frame of solid brass with clear varnish, or with glass base in quartz grey with metal top frame of solid copper with clear varnish. Round tabletop of crystal glass, black lacquered. Details
and colours see price list.
