Dagny Rewera and Dimi Constantinides of BornAnIdea showcase Opto –a table that explores the phenomenon of light polarisation – bringing the extraordinary into the everyday environment.

 

Through layering polarising materials in a choreographed way, the translucent table topexplodes into an array of colours when light penetrates the glass. By rotating the surface, the user can explore the hidden hues beneath, adjusting the colour palette to their liking.

 

In response to an ancient saying ‘a table is a table and only a table’, the designers wanted tore­construct this perception of one of the most ordinary objects in our personal and intimatespaces and offer a magical and unexpected dimension to the product.

Designer: Dagny Rewera & Dimi Constantinides
