'Floe' tables have reflectied light and shadow by crystals and patterns move if furniture is gently pushed.

They are first shown at 'Swarovski Elements at Work' exhibition at Triennale di Milano, 14-19 April 2010. The project was developed to open up interior design market for Swarovski Elements, several designers took part in and worked with furniture or product manufacturers.

Our challenge was to pick up materiality of the crystals in different manner to the fashion industry uses them.  After experimentation with various crystals, we found that the ray light travel through crystal creates interesting charactor.  We worked with Lapalma and consealed floating crystals and LED beam units inside the caskets.
