The Bell Table by Sebastian Herkner turns our perceptual habits on their head, using the lightweight, fragile material of glass as a 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 a characteristic feature.
Side table with a hand-blown glass base in a choice of colours, black crystal glass top and a frame in polished solid brass, unvarnished copper or black lacquered steel.
A special unvarnished copper version was released in 2013. The tables of this special edition are engraved with a serial number and delivered with an appropriate certificate. The metal top frame made out of solid copper is deliberately unvarnished and will slowly develop an attractive natural patina.
