Ivo Table

Mallet, London

 

 

Ivo Table is an elegant and unique table that utilizes a slumped sheet of museum-clear glass suspended across a contiguous and abstracted alloy surface of diamond-shaped facets. The table’s architecture is the result of an asymmetric metal topography of mathematically delineated folds and crevices that create a powerful and sensual curvature. The base of the table is made of a bespoke formula of Tula steel, an historic metal that has been recreated based upon the analysis of an original and rare piece of Imperial Tula steel from 1780.
