Hexagonal Glass Tables: Isom by Sebastian Scherer

German designer Sebastian Scherer has created a series of tables called Isom. The tables are made completely in 10mm sheets of blue, green, grey, and bronze glass, each with a hexagon-shaped top. Supported by three pieces of rectangular glass vertical panels, the tops appear to form rhombuses when looking down at them because of the edges of the base pieces.

Placing multiple tables together creates really cool optical illusions, especially when you mix the colors up. Depending on where you’re standing, you see various depths of color because of the layering effect of the glass.

The shorter version of the table is 25cm high and 60cm in diameter.

You can also get a longer version of the table at the lower height.

The taller version of the table comes in at 35cm high and 120cm in diameter.
