  • Catalogue Essay

    Formed from a combination of reflective resin and solid brass, the "JADE" coffee table looks like a precious gem. Handcrafted in Draga & Aurel's atelier in Como, the surface is made in resin of 10 cm high: each one takes over a week to cast. Thanks to a handcrafted surface treatment, special brass veins characterize the structure of the coffee table. Inspired by the magical mineral color palette of the Draga & Aurel “Transparency Matters” collection, this coffee table is featured by ethereal transparency, luxurious sensitivity, and a reflective surface that plays poetically with the light, reflecting your gaze as a functional work of art. For this capsule collection, Draga & Aurel have interpreted the power of transparency to illuminate, delight, transform and distort. Inspired by Minimalism’s simplified volumes, the retro-futuristic experimentation of Space Age design and the eye-bending patterns of Optical Art, they have brilliantly synthesized these varied influences to build an all-new collection, entirely fabricated by hand in their Como atelier.
