Lucite Coffee Tables Replicate the Phenomenon of Light Refractions

Lucite Coffee Tables Replicate the Phenomenon of Light Refractions

My kids squeal with delight when they discover refractions cast on our walls by light through our sun catcher. Even I still marvel at the phenomenon and serendipity, pausing to take notice whenever the occurrence catches my eye. For Draga & Aurel – an Italy-based multidisciplinary studio founded by Draga Obradovic and Aurel K. Basedow – the wonder of such natural occurrence is so marvelous that it served as inspiration in their latest collection, Flare. Consisting of seven different coffee tables and a totem sculpture, the series is an actualization of fractal concepts.

Working with the artisans on Lake Como where Draga & Aurel are located, the designers combine sheets of lucite that have been produced in different colors and thicknesses to create interesting gradients and hues. The sheets are then cut again and glued, producing that familiar effect of light refracting through an object in a kaleidoscope of color. The resulting tables and totem evoke feelings of revelation, discovery, and awe at every angle.

FLARE is a spark of color that explodes, frees itself, and takes shape. It’s joy, experimentation, intuition, and freedom of expression.
