Description The coffee table 'Origami' is made of extra clear glass.

Coffee table dimension: L 140 x W 70 x H 34cm.

The inspiration for origami came from the observation of a simple piece of paper which, being folded a few times according to an antique Japanese technique, transforms into complex and delicate figures of innate fascination and beauty: The origami.

The idea starts off with the concept of taking advantage of the resistance of glass appreciating its optical lightness with the intent to unveil the similarity between the complex art of origami and the workmanship of glass showing its magic transparency.
Both, paper with its light sense of touch and opacity and glass with its physical heaviness and transparency present contrary features but have also a strong attribute in common: The concept of lightness. The tables origami were created as a result of this theory.

The artworks by Barberini & Gunnell are regularly shown at international art fairs, such as PAD London, PAD Genève, PAD Monaco, Salon Art + Design New York, ArtMiami.
Styles / Movements Collectible Design, Contemporary, Modern
News references The origami was presented by Sotheby's for the auction on 4 November 2015.
