The coffee table 'Origami' is made of extra-clear glass.
Coffee table dimensions: L120 W120 H37 cm.
The inspiration for origami came from the observation of a simple piece of paper which, being folded a few times according to an antique Japanese technique, transforms into complex and delicate figures of innate fascination and beauty: The origami.
The idea starts off with the concept of taking advantage of the resistance of glass appreciating its optical lightness with the intent to unveil the similarity between the complex art of origami and the workmanship of glass showing its magic transparency.
Both, paper with its light sense of touch and opacity and glass with its physical heaviness and transparency present contrary features but have also a strong attribute in common, the concept of lightness. The tables origami were created as a result of this theory.

The Atelier Barberini & Gunnell was founded by the architects and designers Francesco Barberini and Nina A. Gunnell as the result of a passion followed for a long period of time, creating artworks far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions.
The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces.
Every artwork has its inspirational background, it’s story.
Gigantic Spiders as tables which pass by the forests of enormous Mangrove floor lamps, transparent, yet heavy glass Origami tables, Chained up tables which seem to revolt against the immobility of the four legs.
Abandoning the mere functionality and rediscovering emotions; from the warm perfume of wood, losing oneself in the transparent magic of crystal to the cold and sterile steel, thought by mankind for mankind, mirror polished symbol of progress.
Barberini & Gunnell collaborate with the auction houses Sotheby’s, Bonhams, Tajan, Dorotheum, international galleries Priveekollektie, Ammann and private collectors.
The bench Get Lost! in mirror-polished stainless steel, limited edition of 12, was selected by New York architect Peter Marino for the DIOR flagship store in London.
