Tokujin Yoshioka to unveil mirrored glass table for Glas Italia in Milan
Milan 2014: Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka will present a reflective glass table for Italian design brand Glas Italia in Milan next month.
Yoshioka's Prism Mirror Table for Glas Italia uses a high-transparency mirrored glass that covers the surfaces of the table to reflect its surroundings.
"This piece will be a table like a shimmering sculpture reflecting the view of surroundings," said Yoshioka. The table is made up of a long rectangular top with bevelled edges, with mirrored blocks for legs.
The panels of glass were cut in a way that allows the edges of the table to refract light like a prism.
Yoshioka is known for his use of reflective and transparent materials including chairs grown from crystals and furniture that's almost invisible. The table follows on from Tokujin Yoshioka's Prism mirrors for Glas Italia last year. The new piece will be shown at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile from 8 to 13 April.
