Illuminated Side Table

Year: 2008
Status: Small series
Client: destilat


grandma is a side table with a number of diverse facets. At the push of a button the past can be pushed to the fore. Fear of the void, a widespread phenomenon in today’s home environment, disappears behind an unexpectedly emerging ornamental crocheted doily. grandma is an ironic commentary, a loving reminder of tea and bunt cake at grandma’s place.

grandma and grandpa are composed of miter cut, precisely joined, mirrored glass tabletops. Construction and surfaces are stark, the cut-out ornament is visible only when the light goes on.
