BEST TINTED LOVE

"Translucency is having a sultry moment, with tantalising tints for both vessels and furniture, such as Fendi Casa’s ‘Prisme Crystal’ coffee table, which comes in smoked, bronze, green and blue glass (there’s also an ‘ultra-clear’ version). Patricia Urquiola takes a complementary approach with her ‘Bisel’ range of tables for Glas Italia, sandwiching thin layers of glass together with coloured films, whose contrasting hues are revealed along a bevelled edge. Smoky corals feature in Celia Dowson’s ‘Rhossili Collection’ platter, Neri & Hu’s ‘The Light’ candle holder for Paola C, Sophie Lou Jacobsen’s ribbed tumbler and tube- handled pitcher, as well as the glass ‘Sip Smooth’ straws from Hay. Contrast with Philippe Malouin’s ‘Kuru’ vase for Iittala and Paolo Ulian’s ‘X-Tray’ for Antonio Lupi."
