Float by Dean Norton Studio

The Float collection explores transparent form with a subtle overlay of texture, transforming simple tables into light shape-shifting pieces.

Made entirely of glass, Float's seamless form changes depending on its viewing angle, with material opacity, textured layering, and a dynamic mix of fused straight lines and curved edges.

Developed during the Melbourne lockdown months, Float represents a new medium of working and a design narrative that explores the uncertainty and fluidity of our current state.

Presented in a variety of sizes Float can be displayed singularly or as a collective group.
Designed and Hand Crafted in Melbourne.

This project has been longlisted in the furniture design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
