New cooperation with ClassiCon

Sebastian Herkner will launch his first collaboration with ClassiCon at the Milan Salone del Mobile in April. 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 not flaws but rather desirable characteristics marking each piece as unique. The project will be showcased at Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milano 2012.
