Mursi – coffee table | Piergil Fourquié
coffee table “Mursi”
MURSI is a set of low tables whose base is a silvery and coloured glass bubble. The collection brings to the fore the traditional know-how and proficiency of the Nový Bor (Czech Republic) master glassblowers, experts in Bohemian crystal. The cantilever table top is a disk of metal coated in silk-screen printed leather with metallic pigments, thus combining the latest techniques with the most traditional of craftsmanship skills. The pattern is composed of a multitude of small squares, some discernible, others less so, which appear to shimmer depending on the light.
