june 2013A coffee table in glass, ebony and mica
A coffee table in glass, ebony and mica by glassmaker Bernard Pictet and cabinetmaker Ludwig Vogelgesang
A combination of their expertise and discerning creativity, this elegant coffee table was created by Ludwig Vogelgesang and Bernard Pictet for the 2012 International Heritage Show.
Two rare materials are conjoined in this exceptionally refined table: rectangles of dark bronze-coloured mica for the marquetry, and a labyrinth design repeated in the etched glass top.
The mica marquetry veneer uses irregularly arranged rectangles to highlight the mineral’s changing reflections. The traditionally crafted frame is made of ebony from Mozambique.
This same pattern is reproduced in the table-top in extra-white glass which has been etched and chiselled in a "pyramidal maze" design, then water-gilded to obtain a high gloss finish with a dark patina in keeping with the natural colour of the mica. The labyrinth design adapts to the contours of the mica marquetry, while the patina ensures a pleasing harmony of colour.
