Product news: German designer Sebastian Scherer used sheets of coloured glass to create these tessellating tables.
Sebastian Scherer's Isom tables consist of a hexagonal top resting on three upright pieces, and from certain angles look like an isometric drawing of a cube.
The sheets of blue, green, grey and bronze coloured glass are glued together with UV adhesive.
The translucent layers overlap to create varying colour intensities.
The tables are available in two heights, and the lower version is also available in an elongated shape.
Sebastian Scherer studied product design in Aachen before moving to Berlin, where he set up his studio in 2010.
Here's some more information from the designer:
Sebastian Scherer's glass tables are design objects and pieces of art at the same time. They resemble cubistic objects and invite us to play with optical illusions. The tables are made from 10 mm strong coloured glass in blue, green, grey and bronze. The construction is as simple as ingenious. A hexagonal glass top lays on three vertical rectangles, that meet in the center.
The dark reflecting cut surfaces build rhombuses, which evoke the illusion of an isometric cube. This effect increases by the overlaying transparent colours varying in their intensity depending on your perspective. The table with multiple colours and the set impress most. Isom is available in two sizes, 60 cm in diameter, 25 cm high, and 120 cm in diameter, 35 cm high.
