Design Trend – the glass house effect

Tuesday, July 24th, 2018

An example of an eclectic design that comes through in a marriage between modern materials and architectural lines is the Klirr dining table designed by Emmanuele Zenere for Cattelan Italia. A work of art that preserves the minimal modernism of glass yet is warmed by the presence of a singular wooden beam that doubles as a structural essential and a source of sculptural spotlight, the Klirr table is a unique solution that is subtle with its decorative freedoms and convenient in terms of its inherent, no-frill simplicity. This particular element of unforgettable sense of weightlessness, is the true attraction of the Klirr dining table and is also widely known because of the glass house infatuation that’s often not realizable because of the increasingly growing habitual saturation. For the fans of glass houses and those who live in one, this particular modern dining room table is as close and as pure of a reality that may not be as farfetched as its seemingly was in the past.
