Glas gioca con il colore
Glas is continuing its experiments with glass and unusual kinds of products and modules.

The most interesting include Boxinbox, a series of low tables and open shelf units that are conceived as boxes inside boxes by Starck, who is new to the company. All are built in extra-light glass made of two sheets of heat-sealed glass (5+5 millimetres). The panes are positioned on bases of polished steel that amplify the reflections of light and colour. The inner boxes are made in coloured transparent glass, hand-woven caning and zebrano wood with swallow-tailed joints, or in matte white or black plastic.

The Bouroullec brothers, after their collection of minimal writing desks designed last year, have had fun designing an enormous two-faced mirror that is hung from the ceiling and easily adjusted in height with help from counterweights, cables and pulleys. The counterweights are cylinders of hand-blown red, brown or neutral clear glass. Shimmer, a line of low tables, consoles and shelves by Patricia Urquiola shown last year in an unfinished version, are now presented with a play of lights that exalts the chromatic effects of iridescent glass with a light-reactive multicoloured finish that changes hue depending on your vantage point.
