Junya Ishigami’s Drop Table is a paradox of fluid static. The table is formed using GS Plexiglas®, taking some 50 hours of work to create after it undergoes each step in the process. The focal point of the table is the giant, contact lens-resembling “drop” tabletop. At a glance, it appears to be a delicate plate of glass. Upon closer inspection, you will notice how solid the 2000 x 3000 mm, and 70 mm thick sheet of cast GS Plexiglas® is, boasting a diameter of 148 cm. Three cast GS Plexiglas® cylinders are interpolated into the circular slots of the top by a machine process that integrates them perfectly. Afterwards, the 60 mm legs are polished by hand, each of them slightly different according to where they were positioned into varying angles of the tabletop. Drop endures an extensive smoothing and polishing procedure overall, contributing to the ice sculpture appearance of the final product. Because the affect of the Drop is meant to distort the perception of the piece’s surrounding space and objects, Ishigami’s Family Chair line is the ideal company to compliment and complete this surrealistic endeavor.
This table can serve as a dining table (height 75cm) or a coffee table (height 39cm) and is crafted with a glossy transparent perspex.

Colorful mustaches to punctuate any space with a little personality, indoor or out. The “Blossy” divan designed by Karim Rashid is made up of polyethylene molded into a shape that conjures up a variety of images; like a costume mask or reinvented 60s plastic furniture, or as earlier joked about- a brightly colored wax mustache. Perhaps you can supply a few visions of your own? This interesting piece measures to 159 cm x 79 cm x h 34/86 cm. Colors include: anthracite, white, fuschia, yellow, black, red and lime green.
