Bell Coffee Table
Designed by: Sebastian Herkner
Manufactured by: ClassiCon
Year of production: 2012
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 virtues of hand-craftsmanship. 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.
