The tables and the materials chosen for the collection were inspired by reflection and refraction (dichroic glass) and absorbent and repellent (quartz) as a way to “create a dialogue between the two materials and demonstrate how the environment can influence the design object.”

The ABCD is a cantilevered side table that’s available in both materials. The quartz version was made by Caesarstone in Caesarea, Israel in a 12mm white quartz that is made from reclaimed materials (93% quartz). The dichroic versions are made by Prinz Optics GmbH in Germany out of 6mm Borosilicate glass that’s coated with an inorganic dichroic filter.
