The designers duo Setsu&Shinobu Ito has designed EN, a coffee tables collection with high-temperature fused glass top inspired to the ancient Japanese tradition. The new coffee tables minimal and linear metallic structure combines to the contrasting round shaped glass top according to the suggestive evocative power of the word en. Thanks to its continuity and the absence of oppositions, the circle is a symbol of inclusion, equality and harmony, and becomes the emblem of a meeting where different elements merge becoming a single unit. Suggestive and expressive at the same time, the fused glass top recalls the typical camellia plate used during the Japanese tea ceremony, recreating the iconic atmosphere of spirituality and aesthetic of this ritual and, through its slightly concave shape, embraces and protects the objects stored in it. A real interweaving of symbolisms and memory that underlies a timeless and elegant design characterized by a vitreous surface obtained thorough accurate high-fusion techniques and the use of special metallic paints reminding of the intensity and brightness of the famous Japanese lacquers.

Mac Stopa extends his project with Fiam Italia designing the new Coral Beach coffee tables collection thanks to the synergy between avant-garde methods such as the 3D printing and traditional artisanal manufacturing processes like the high-temperature embossing. An innovative technique that allows the glass plate to produce unpredictable lighting effects by virtue of the high-temperature fusion processes and the use of special paints, being able to generate an effect of three-dimensionality and deepness on the glass surface that therefore becomes elegant and sinuous through the creation of a powerful emotional impact. In the new coffee tables, inspired to the organic and perfect geometries of modern architecture, design and passion for graphic merge in an aesthetic discipline able to communicate its fascination for mathematic and geometry, through modular elements, sculpture and digital art.
