Light Captured as a Table

I love these tables from Glas Italia so much! They are so colorful and cheerful and bordering on the wonderfulness of neon but in table form. They were designed by Johanna Grawunder who is a former lighting desginer who just recently made her debut as a furniture designer with this series. Drawing on her lighting experience for inspiration, Grawunder has designed XX console and XXX low table - two fruit salad tinted tables - to emanate light without the need for electrical interference. Constructed from x shaped glass bases and topped with rectangular and circular surfaces, the tables were uncovered this week alongside the rest of Glas Italia’s 2009 collection. In my opinion, I think she did a great job nof translating her work with light into furniture.
