The “Bell Table” coffee 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 handcraftsmanship. 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.

Mads Sætter-Lassen has created a chair titled MSL 35 using Elm, steel and wool.
Description from the designer : The chair was done as part of The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Designs contribution to the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013.
The aim with the chair was to challenge the limits of the theme “the new textile furniture”.
As such the appearance of the chair’s shell is the result of investigating the potential of veneer for wicker work – i.e. of using a non-textile material in a textile way.
During the process much attention has been paid to the differences in the tactile nature of different materials.
