Concept

The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner turns our perceptual habits on their head, using the lightweight, fragile material of glass as a 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, intriguingly contrasting with the solid brass frame on top while also forming a harmonious unit with it, recalling the elegant curved silhouette of a bell. With its appealing reflective surfaces and contrasting
materials, the side table adds a distinctive touch to living environments.
It celebrates the beauty of the materials with their colours and surfaces, along with the workmanship. The Bell Table is a masterwork of traditional craftsmanship. Each table is handmade and has characteristic features such as irregularities in glass thickness, small bubbles or bumps in the glass.
