Glass panels sit at right angles to each other to form two desks, two benches and shelf in this range by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec called the Diapositive collection.

"Diapositive consists of an assembly system of simple glass panels in which the edges are protected with pieces of wood, which distract from the impression of fragility," said the designers.

One of the desks also includes an ash counter for writing, while the tops and legs are edged in the same wood.

The glass bench features a thin layer of dark coloured felt that forms a cushion on top of the seat.

    Finally, library furniture that will require a 24hr cleaning staff.

    These are actually quite lovely.
