Forwards, sideways, backwards
by Anna Moldenhauer | 1/25/2019
Marble changes the first impression of the meanwhile famous Bell Table by designer Sebastian Herkner and enhances our perceptual surprise: The unusual use of materials makes the heavyweight tabletop seemingly float on the hand-blown, visually lightweight glass base. The materials enter into an interesting symbiosis with the contrast between the grain and colour play of the marble and the metal surface and hand-blown glass.
The base of the Bell Table becomes a striking, transparent tinted glass sculpture in space with a metal body resting on it. The glass provides the heavy metal with an appearance of floating lightness. The traditionally hand-blown glass base and pressed metal body establish an intriguing contrast while also forming a harmonious unit, reminiscent of the elegant curved silhouette of a bell. With their appealing reflective surfaces and contrasting materials, the side tables add a distinctive touch to living environments. They celebrate 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.
