The architect Paul Wintermans has been designing furniture primarily for architectural projects since the 1980s. This furniture was produced as unique pieces or as very limited productions. Wintermans furniture designs can be found in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
This table is an ingenious engineered design, constructed from three separate pieces: A sheet of glass sandblasted except for two clear stripes that act both as a design feature and help position the two steel rod feet with adjustable fixings. The two feet simply lean into the structure which when combined with the weight of the glass enables the structure to clamp into place.
