Consider it the evolved, sophisticated version of a rainbow: Glas Italia’s Shimmer tavoli (Italian for tables), the brainchild of Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola, delights with its striking iridescent finish. The series of round tables, consisting of high and low tables as well as consoles in laminated and glued glass, can be characterised by its special multichromatic shine.
The collection is a star in its own right; Australian singer-songwriter and actor Troye Sivan has the Shimmer side table in the main living area of his Melbourne home. The side table also made frequent on-screen appearances in the Korean hit drama Crash Landing on You, as part of the contemporary decor that can be found within Yoon Se-ri’s (Son Ye-Jin) home. In fact, Son herself was so taken by the design that she purchased the Shimmer coffee table for her very own abode.
Made from iridescent glass with a multi-coloured sheen, the collection boasts an ethereal quality that quietly steals the show in any space. The team sought to fuse practical functionality with the beauty of glass. The round-edged tables rest on slanted legs with curved rims that touch the ground, while the consoles are balanced on a single base and are designed to be leaned against a wall for additional support.
