Illusion Side Table - Clear

John Brauer for ESSEY

Regular price $330.00


Illusion tables are hand made in Germany and each is unique - not one is identical to another.

As with many great designs, inspiration is often derived from a story in order to create another. In the words of Illusion designer, John Brauer, "One day I was passing a cafe in Copenhagen. It was morning and the cafe was preparing for lunch. There were round tables with white tablecloths. Each cloth was square and almost touched the floor. I stopped and took a photo through the window with my phone. I went to a plastic workshop, showed them the image and asked if it was possible to make such an object in plastic. The answer was no. But I continued my quest and after a few months some early samples were ready. The result was Illusion, a stunning example of Symbolic Functionalism that has received an extremely enthusiastic reception from both the press and consumers."

Illusion is intended to hold no more than 35 pounds.
