Glass coffee table
Enthralled by life-giving power of the air and its motion, designers Lars Kemper and Peter Ollah have created the series of objects called ZigZag. Much like the piping hot glass on a blowpipe or the beloved instrument of an accordion player, they bulge and expand outwards, into space.
Although the name of the collection conjures up connotations of whimsicality and playfulness, these objects once again push the boundaries of the possible. Manipulating such a huge volume of hot glass requires strength coupled with much experience and skill in the craft. The mastery necessary for properly grinding and polishing the surface is possessed by only a handful of artisans. When a number of the resulting products are combined however, they comprise a stunningly organic whole.
