Glass is such a versatile and practical material it’s no wonder we have so many different uses for it. Being that interior design is our passion, we’re naturally drawn to glass furniture and we’d like to share with you some of the most exceptional designs that we came across over the years. They emphasize all that makes glass special like its durability, easy maintenance and transparency.
In 2002 Giovanni Tommaso Garattoni created the Naked chair. It’s an armchair with a comfortable and adjustable leather seat and with a frame made of two side panels made of glass. It weighs 67 kg and it can hold a load of up to 120 kg. The glass is 20 mm thick and surprisingly strong and durable.
Ever seen a bar cart as stylish as this one? The Kart is on a whole different level. It was designed by Karim Rashid in 2015 and it has a structure made entirely of glass. The most interesting feature is the pair of large glass wheels which support the cart. The bottom tray is the only contrasting element. It can be pulled out for easy access.
Glass is a material that in lots of ways makes sense when it comes to makeup vanities and console tables. It looks delicate and sophisticated, especially with all those beautiful curves featured by the Opalina Toletta console designed in 2016 by Cristina Celestino
The stylish mirror featured next to this beautiful console is called Soglia and was designed in 1989 by Isao Hosoe. The thing that makes it stand out is the revolving base made of glass which allows the user to turn the double-sided mirror as desired.
Floating shelves are appreciated for their simplicity and ability to maintain an open and spacious feel by looking lightweight. Naturally, shelves made of glass are much better at that. In 1997 Emilio Nanni designed Alfabeta, a series of glass shelves with metal supports which can be positioned on walls in numerous different ways.
Designed for entryways and bedrooms, Shoji is a stylish wardrobe made out of glass and wood. It has a transparent glass frame and a wooden bench with built-in storage. A mirrored sliding door partially covers its front. This was a design by Lorenzo De Bartolomeis and Studio Hosoe created in 2017.
