Concept

Crossing stainless steel frames, connected by cast metal elements, create the structure for this glass table. The square tubing is available in either 3 × 3 cm (T48/3) or 4 × 4 cm (T48/4) sizes. The glass tabletop, available in 15 mm or 24 mm thickness, rests upon cast metal mounts, available in 4 different styles.

The Pivot series
With this series being structured around a T-bar or crossbar, zero screws and minimal fixtures are in play. Instead, everything centres on a single mathematically driven construct. Peter Ghyczy describes the Pivot Series as having design principles that are not unlike a deck of cards, where a simple slit and slide mechanism can make for the most pivotal construct. Once again, contrasting and unconventional design come together to create something very functional.
