A collection of stools consisting of silvered and simple internally coloured glass pieces reflecting their surroundings in the mirror surface.



This admirable effect is created by the technology of silvering glass. For many years, glass manufacturers had tried to produce silvered glassware using a number of compounds; early pieces used mercury amalgams based on techniques for silvering mirrors, but these proved unsuitable. Silvered glass was first made in the 1840s and patented in England in 1849 and in the USA in 1855. From 1860 onwards, the main production of silvered glass came from glassworks in Bohemia. Silvered glass is double-walled glassware with a silver coating inside the walls. The silvering liquid is poured into the space between the walls of the glass vessel through a hole in the bottom and adheres to the glass, thus creating an interesting optical effect on the outside. The soft lines of the Wave stools symbolize the answer of the form to the pressure or the waving surface of water. They can be used as coffee tables, too, creating an attractive artistic detail for the interior or terrace. (in cooperation with Dan Yeffet)
