The Aster coffee table, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, is the ultimate expression of compositional rationality and craftsmanship. A unique object made entirely by hand, a contemporary work of art that combines aesthetics and functionality. Each table has a slightly different connotation, testifying to its handcrafted nature.
Its base features a brass casting made with an earth mould that gives it the sophisticated hammered effect. The ring is mounted to the legs by welding. A vibratory finishing technique completes the aesthetics. With the help of stones, the structure is gently smoothed, giving it a wavy effect.
The top consists of an annealed glass with a thickness of 1.9 cm and distinguished at the bottom by a slight ripple that gives it personality. Here, too, the manufacturing technique is meticulous: the sheet is placed in a mold with a rusticated bottom and fused at a temperature of 180 degrees, giving the glass its typical finish.
Aster is available in two sizes: 50 cm in height with a 40 cm top in diameter, or 40 cm by 50 cm. Finishes are available in polished brass or black patinated brass, while the top can be customised in smocked glass or green. The Aster coffee table is a piece with a sculptural value, which can be used transversally to collections and spaces.
