The Ripples bench by Toyo Ito, winner of the 2004 Golden Compass, has blossomed into a collection of different furniture complements. Amongst them, we may highlight the Bifronte side table, where a small portion of Ripples is framed in a shelf of extra clear glass, creating a “trompe l’oeil” effect of mid-air suspension. Bifronte becomes a nightstand with the addition of a capacious drawer on wheels. This presents white lacquered and walnut fronts, to better integrate with the overall chromatic disposition of the sleeping area.
Curved extra-clear tempered glass bridge with polished edge, 12 mm thick. Shelf made from plywood using five different types of solid wood (walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak and ash). Shelf-supporting plates made from stainless steel, 10 mm in diameter and 20 mm in height, fixed with UV adhesive on the glass bridge. Semi-transparent PVC feet. Basket with Nylon 6 wheels, made from solid walnut with white lacquered front.
