Liquid Glacial Coffee Table by Zaha Hadid


The Zaha Hadid Architects is certainly one of the most productive high profile design firms in the world. In spite of the large number of projects, their innovative designs keep turning heads and generating loads of hype. This is so with the Liquid Glacial Table as well.

The tables usually have flat tops. And static as well. But this one seems fluid, while its legs seem to be created from constant pour of water. How is this possible?

First of all, the table is created from two smaller tables which, when put together, form a sizeable dining table. The flowing effect comes from the fact that it is cast in acrylic that is clear and colored, giving the table the look of water being frozen while flowing.

The acrylic material adds depth through seemingly constant refractions which mirror the colors and shapes of the environment while transforming according to the change in viewpoint of the observer.

This play of colors and shapes does not hinder functionality, making this a perfect addition to any modernly designed home.
