Handle with care

Would you be comfortable sitting on a bench made entirely of glass? Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec challenge you to try out their latest 'Diapositive' furniture.

For the first-time collaboration with Glas Italia, the Bouroullec Brothers made a collection of thermo-welded glass furniture with wood and felt details.

Diapositive consists of an assembly system of simple glass panels in which the edges are protected with pieces of wood, helping to negate the impression of fragility. The collection includes a high and low working desk, a bench and sofa as well as a bookcase.

The French brothers also specifically developed a series of accent colours for the range. A soft pink and punchy orange offset two shades of grey.
