Homune glass table by Michael Young for Lasvit

October 20th, 2012 by retail design blog

Working together with Czech glass company Lasvit, Hong Kong-based designer Michael Young has conceived ‘Homune’, a functional table whose base is composed of 36 separate hand-blown fractals – six different forms repeating six times – executed in an amber color. These are combined to represent an endless geometric construction, accompanied by a hand-blown table top made from clear crystal.

‘(…)over the years we have experimented with fractal structures creating endless constructions, not art but design experimentation, studies into the unknown and transpired this research into the new Lasvit glass table. We discovered that by blowing glass into only one metal tool and cutting it at different lengths, we could make logical and functional structures, the first thing being this special edition table.’ – Michael Young
