Sebastian Herkner’s Bell Table reverses our perceptual habits by using light, fragile glass as a base for a metal top that seems to float above it.
The transparent colored glass base, hand-blown in the traditional style using a wooden moulding, contrasts intriguingly with the solid brass frame above, creating a harmonious unit that recalls the gracefully curved silhouette of a bell while at the same time exuding a sculptural presence in space.
With its attractive reflective surfaces and contrasting materials, the side table adds a distinctive touch to interiors. It celebrates artisanal tradition as well as the beauty of materials with their colors and surfaces. The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner is a masterpiece of traditional craftsmanship. Each table is handmade, so small bubbles or bumps in the glass are a characteristic feature.
