Alwa side-tables for Pulpo (2015)

We wanted to create glass in a new way, something solid and unique. We are fascinated by casted glass, compared with mouth blown glass elements, which have a specific wall thickness,  Alwa tables have a tabletop made of 50 mm casted glass. The liquid glass is left in a special metal mold to solidify for several days. The air bubbles in the glass give each tabletop a unique character. The appearance mimics the aesthetic of water. Alwa is a side table made of casted glass, balanced on a metal frame.
