Public vote winner for furniture design of the year: Yiannis Ghikas has designed Soda for Miniforms: a coffee table born upside-down, with a puff of air.
It weighs 20 kilos, and it is blown, drawn out and shaped by three master glassmakers. The result is a single volume of glass with three large petals forming the stem.
In Soda, the glass vibrates: its tough, hammered surface fragments its transparency to give a primitive aesthetic. This is artistic value granted to an industrial product.
