‘Tracks’, designed by Belgian designer Alain Gilles, is an extendable table with a transparent glass tabletop held in place by a pair of contrasting coloured steel rails resting on a ‘tie’-like wooden frame.

“The tracks are basically the two parallel axes that define the logic of the piece and act as the path for the extensions, just like tracks for a train.” says Gilles.

Adds the designer, “The table is also a discussion between visibility and invisibility, weight and weightlessness, cold and warm with the use of a combination of very different materials that convey different and contrasted feelings… Depending on how one plays with the different structural elements of the table it will take on different personalities.”
