Shortly after graduating, he completed his first project destined for success: the Bell Table. The “Bell Table” by Sebastian Herkner turns our perceptual habits on their head, using the lightweight, fragile material of glass as base for a metal top that seems to float above it. Each table is handmade, meaning that small bubbles or bumps in the glass are not flaws but rather desirable characteristics marking each piece as unique.
