As glass acts go, these are pretty hard to fol­low. Gian­franco Ferré Home’s ‘Jenga’ cof­fee ta­ble is con­structed en­tirely from rec­tan­gles of light- and dark-coloured glass, im­pec­ca­bly as­sem­bled with­out vis­i­ble joints. More sculp­tural still is the ‘Fu­sion’ bench, with a mar­ble core hold­ing stacked acrylic rods, by Chiara Pel­li­cano and Edoardo Gi­ammar­i­oli of Rome­based Mil­lim Stu­dio for Se­con­dome. Marco Piva’s ‘Marty’ con­sole for Vi­sion­naire con­trasts ribbed and smooth glass to ar­chi­tec­tural ef­fect, while the South Korean de­signer Ji­hye Kang’s ‘Pu­rity’ side ta­ble pairs clear acrylic rods with a stain­less-steel base. Ex­tra bril­liance is pro­vided by Ste­fan Diez’s cylin­dri­cal ‘Guise’ hang­ing light for Vibia, and An­gelo Man­gia­rotti’s re-edi­tioned ‘Lari’ ta­ble lamp from 1978, hand-blown in a sin­gle piece. Clear win­ners, one and all.
