The glass manufacturer Glas Italia presented a range of pretty diverse products this year, among them the colourful table series by the Milano based American designer Johanna Grawunder. The overlapping variably tinted elements create a multi-faceted play of colours and underline the geometric basic design of the table.
Piero Lissonis contibution is a very clear and minimal series of rectangular high tables. The base, in transparent extra-light 19 mm. thick glass, shaped and ground with a shiny curved edge, is composed of two supporting elements, linked to a tie bar by means of satined steel plates. The extreme thinness and lightness of the base, achieved through a sophisticated and complex production process, corresponds to the solidity which the special tempering process provides.
