In July, I wrote a post on the Ghost Chair by Cini Boeri and Tomu Takayanagi. Being made of glass, I was surprised by their beauty, solidity and comfort. And with that, I started investigating more about glass furniture only to find out the Italian firm Fiam (for whom the chair was designed) has been developing, designing and producing furniture in curved glass since 1973!!! They’ve collaborated with superstar designers from Ron Arad to Philippe Starck and now the Belgian interior designer Xavier Lust has designed for them the amazingly stunning Graph Desk.
The desk’s base of ravishing curved glass is fastened to its glass top with three stainless steel connecting plates. It looks simple because of its transparency and lightness, but its chemistry and physics make it quite a complex feat of artistic engineering. Like the chair, some people may hesitate because it is glass. I just think it is absolutely marvelous!
