Naked Extendable Dining Table - By jtaylorwright.com
Naked extensible table designed by Piero Lissoni for Glas Italia is entirely realized in tempered transparent or transparent extralight glass, with top 15 mm and feet 19 mm thick. The two extensions, placed at the edges of the top, open and close through rotation by means of special and innovative hinges fixed to the glass. Founded by the Arosio family in Brianza Italy, Glas Italia is based on glass craftsmanship and collaboration with designers including Ettore Sottsass and Piero Lissoni. Described by Sottsass as one of the most openminded industrialists he had ever worked with, Glas Italia specialises in producing large glass and crystal plates and invented a system to produce coloured mirror plates. Working with Ettore Sottsass the group produced some of the most dynamic pieces using this new technology. Today the collection continues to be guided by colour.

This extendable glass dining table is almost entirely realised in glass. The only other elements used are the two hinges that allow for the rotation of the extension plates. The purity and simplicity of the table add a level of beautifully designed minimalism to any setting. A very special piece of glass furniture — which is not only elegant and beautiful to look at but also highly functional.
