Tonelli Bacco marries the aesthetically antithetical properties of glass to create the Glass Table. Fragile yet resistant, and solid yet light, Tonelli Bacco's inspirations come from forging a philosophy that conjoins tradition and technology. The table itself is fully formed of transparent glass, with its legs a bent, right-angled piece that holds up a large slate of glass at the top.

The table costs $2,800, and is a beautiful piece of precise engineering that molds simplicity with imagination. The table is made from a 12mm-thick toughened glass top and two symmetrical glass supports to create a well-balanced aesthetic form. The table comes in standard and transparent glass or extra-clear glass. The top of the table is available in both a square and rectangular top.
