Most Wanted - Sheer Desire

Formed by hand from 3mm acrylic, this side table suggests the smooth drape of a tablecloth — without
a table in sight. John Brauer’s Illusion Table is handcrafted in Denmark for Essey and each is unique. Simple yet highly clever, the table stands alone as a magical expression of the many avenues of furniture design still open to pursuit. For a table that measures only 16 inches by 18 inches — several can be clustered as a coffee table — and is made of an almost invisible material, it achieves the look-at-me power of a gargantuan dining table in Day-Glo orange. Fortunately, it’s available only in clear ($235) and white ($260)
in the United States.

The company also makes it in gray (shown), brown, and red.

See through it for yourself at or at SHOW Los Angeles, 1722 N. Vermont Ave., (323) 644-1960,
