Bell Table is a series of tables built for the first time in 2012, which marked the beginning of a partnership between the designer Sebastian Herkner and ClassiCon.
The main material in this series is glass, which is usually defined as “filigree” and “fragile”. However, in this case, glass provides a solid support structure because coloured and transparent pieces of glass are used to form the table bases.
Along with glass, these tables have metal tops that are actually heavier than they look. The tops appear to be lightweight, almost “suspended”. The two materials seem to contrast one another but, at the same time, they generate a harmonious unified image that looks like the elegant curves of a bell. This shape gives the series its name.
Strong from this success, ClassiCon has decided to expand the series this year. They are adding a new product to the existing line: a Side/Coffee Table. This piece has the perfect dimensions to adapt to any living or dining room, lobby or public area.
Like the other products in the collection, this new table has a glass top made with traditional glass blowing techniques inside a wood mould. Each Bell Table is handmade, and as such, each table is a unique piece with distinctive characteristics like variable glass thickness, tiny bubbles and irregularities.
