We have watched some really interesting developments in glass furniture over recent years. This year the glass furniture at Milan was stunning and in our opinion over shadowed some of the other exhibitors new furniture lines. With companies such as Glas Italia, Tonelli Design, Fiam Italia, Gallotti&Radice leading the way in design. We thought we would kick of our first ever blog with some of our favourite glass furniture at Milan 2015.
The above glass table design designed by Nendo for Glas Itala. This table, named ‘Soft’ is formed from frosted sections of glass which have special gradient prints on the reverse face. The glass sections are fixed together using special, highly technical, ultra strong glueing techniques.
The Mirage glass furniture collection is formed from layered sections of glass, mirror and wood or patterned inter-layers. The mirrored surfaces reflect opposing faces, causing a sort of ‘mirage’ effect from which the table gets its name. This collection of glass tables are produced by Tonlli and designed by Matteo Ragni.
The Glass Table above is formed through an combination of intricate glass polishing and uv bonding techniques. The top section is constructed entirely from glass and then appears to rest effortlessly on top of the wooden legs below.
The glass Coffee table above is constructed from 10 mm transparent extra light toughened glass and is supported on top of a Black open pore or rust lacquered wooden base. other finishes shown include; Bright brass, hand burnished brass, coppered brass or black chromed metal parts. This glass furniture at Milan has been designed by Massimo Castagna for Gallotti Radice.
We saw so many great designs which we would classify as progressive glass furniture at Milan this year that it has been difficult to fit them all into one post. once we have the images ready and the text formatted we will be back to you with some more beautiful glass furniture from Milan 2015.
