Translucent Table

The Japanese firm Nendo unveiled two new pieces for the Salone del Mobile, Milan. I particularly like the table they created, the piece is made of acrylic and comes in black and white. The dark and light options were created to provide differing optical effects.

Exploring  the transparent and the opaque was the aim of the design team. “The two tables have specific and different optical effects: at first glance the black table is wood, but a closer look reveals its transparency, while the clear table is the transparent at first glance, and only later reveals its wooden form.” (Nendo)
