Side table made of cast glass
With the Alwa table for Pulpo, Sebastian Herkner’s goal was to put glass in the scene in a new way. The designer has created a table, which has a unique character through the combination of glass and metal, as well as the artisanal qualities thanks to its production by hand.
Each Alwa table is unique
The Alwa tables have a 50 mm thick cast glass top. The liquid glass is left in a special metal mould to harden for several days. Due to the resulting bubbles, each table top is unique - a special detail that imitates the aesthetics of water and gives each table an unmistakable look this way.
One table, two bases
Alwa is a table with two base frames. Alwa I features a steel frame, keeping the tabletop on two angled plates.
Alwa II balances the tabletop on three legs, which gets additional stability through two connections.
The Alwa tables by Sebastian Herkner for Pulpo are available in two versions with different bases made of powder-coated or chrome-plated steel. The tabletop consists of 50 mm thick cast glass in different colours.Also in our blog:
