ATLAN - TISCH
Glass coffee table with light
Giers: "Originally there was the word: Atlan-tisch. A blue shining tangle of wires under a smoke tinted table top resembles water. Little sparkling lights, which resemble the glittering sea, can be switched on. The effect is very restrained or rather meditative." Limited Edition: 50 pieces
Some adjectives in the German language have the ending "-tisch" equivalent to "-tic" in the English language. The artist took his inspiration from German adjectives with this ending, which as a noun "Tisch" is the German word for "table". This play on words can be explained but, unfortunately, not be translated.
