Cassiopeia Table by Steve Watson – London
The Cassiopeia is a large glass topped dining table with cold rolled aluminium legs and bevelled edges. The dramatic sculptural base is formed from three laser cut cold-rolled aluminium pieces braced together in a structure reminiscent of elliptical orbital patterns.
The tabletop is a triangular piece of toughened glass with curved edges. The Cassiopeia is a design that pays homage to architectural structure. It also plays with perceptions, like a visual trick. The cleverly conceived leg detail makes the table appear both heavy and light, depending upon which angle it is viewed from.
