Concept

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 table is handmade, meaning that small bubbles or bumps in the glass are a characteristic feature.
