Soda
by Yiannis Ghikas for Miniforms

Winner: Furniture design of the year 2021. 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.

Judges comments: "This is a great example of simplicity in design. The material has a poetic quality, and out of all the pieces we’ve seen, this is the most innovative and surprising."
