Soda Blown Murano Glass High Coffee Table in Blue Light by Yiannis Ghikas

About the Item

Soda was 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 textured aesthetic. This is artistic value granted to an industrial product. Soda is named after one of the three main ingredients of glass. It’s our way to celebrate this charming material. Our latest collaboration with Yiannis Ghikas led us to Soda, a collection of 20 kilos-volume of Murano blown-glass coffee tables. Available in two sizes and two colours, Amber and Petrol Green, the coffee table has a strong and iconic appeal, but it’s also flexible. Soda perfectly fits both homes and any public spaces. Throughout Soda’s research and design process, we were astounded at the lack of glass-blown products of this size and kind. Only later we realized it is because of the technical difficulties inherent in the handling of such an object, as well as the degree of expertise required to do it. An expertise possessed by a handful of highly skilled artisans in the Italian island of Murano. Among our main objectives was to use one of the most characteristic attributes of glass in our advantage: its transparency. Thus, we designed an object with such a geometry that allows it to play with light and shadow, creating different shapes as one’s perspective changes. If you look at the Soda from a certain edge, you see darker parts because of the way the layers of glass overlap. On the other hand, we have no control over the glass texture. We had to accept that this would stem from the skill of the artisanal process. Yiannis Ghikas was born in Athens, Greece. With his background encompassing Computer Science alongside Design, he employs functionality as the ultimate purpose of his designs while explores their potential emotive responses. He sees design as a process of satisfying needs either tangible or intangible. His “Monarchy” stool has received the ""red dot design award"" (2009). He has worked with companies like feld (Belgium), Objekten(Belgium), miniforms(Italy), convex(Greece), the Industrial Gas Museum/Athens. His work has been exhibited internationally.
