Visible Spectrum

For the decision-impaired among us, Piero Lissoni’s Spectrum table for Glas Italia might provide some solace.

This low crystal coffee table is a kind of Cubist exploration in the form of an homage to fine glass.

To arrive at this arresting interplay of form, color, and texture, Lissoni adhered a mirrored bottom to four different types and finishes of glass, in order: Flutes printed glass, Quadretti printed glass, glass with user’s choice of Masaccio or Botticelli fabric, and transparent colored glass in a choice of 12 colors.

The top is finished off with extra-light transparent glass, sized for partial coverage and placed where the user wishes.

In keeping with Lissoni’s body of work, Spectrum shines as an example of precision execution with a demanding material and the ability to create harmony between elegance and formal rigor.
