Etheral and almost invisible: Furniture made of glass and acrylic
In 2019, interior design has a lightness that is almost ethereal. Sofas sit enthroned on slender legs while walls are draped in pastel colours. Furniture tells the story of our times in which the everyday is becoming increasingly nomadic. It is in a state of formal suspension and looks as if it wants to touch down in our life only temporarily. The accompanying occasional furniture is relying increasingly on glass as the material. From individual table tops to a whole shelf, manufacturers are bringing objects into our living rooms that physically manifest themselves only through the things that are placed in and on them. At the same time, the new glass furniture is training its owners. After all, one thing differentiates it from the classic display cabinet: it allows light through and makes the room seem spacious – provided that space is the dominant feature.
