aqua table

dedicated to my favorite person, rena, for making me love these two


This stunning table lamp by London based design company Industrial Facility in collaboration with Oluce will be previewed this week at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milan. The light diffuses downwards from within the metal ‘shade’ and is contained within the glass, giving the impression that it is hovering above the table surface. Air and light seem to be moving.  We love the  phenomenal interaction it creates with the space around it. 

It would look amazing on this iconic Aqua table by Zaha Hadid for Established and Sons, with its curvaceous, undulating forms flowing within space. The lower structural body is made of polyester with a silicon gel top and the whole structure implies movement by adopting the gestures of liquid. What a dynamic combination!

Not when I working, but I was getting brunch with a friend and this customer at a booth behind us wanted a refill on water. Instead of waiting for the waitress, she stops the Latino employee cleaning tables and loudly and slowly tells him that she wants “a G L A S S of water! AQUA! I want AQUA at THIS table.” My friend and I were so appalled with how rude that was, I just wish I would’ve said something
