The making of the Soda Coffee Table

Only a handful of artisans on the island of Murano have the technical knowledge and expertise required to produce something like this. This is why an all glass coffee table such as this one is extremely short in supply.

The making of each Miniforms Soda table starts with one unique piece of Murano blown glass. It is placed in a Murano furnace where each table is blown, drawn-out and shaped by three master glass-makers.  They are equipped with a complex system of burners to keep the same temperature throughout the mold, which is essential to creating a hammered feeling to the texture. The result is a single volume of glass with three large petals forming the stem.

The rippling texture of the table showcases class and ethereal beauty, and the uniqueness of the glass provides extraordinary effects of light and shadow. The glass coffee table is available in amber and petrol green.

The Miniforms Soda Table at Modern Loft

At Modern Loft this design has become a favorite. Our Soda tables are in stock so they can ship out right away. The table  is available in two colors and two sizes, a brilliant amber and a classy petrol green.

It's remarkable to see such geometry that allows a play of light and shadows, creating different shapes as one’s perspective changes.

If you look at the Soda from a certain edge, you see darker parts because of the way the layers of glass overlap. On the other hand, we have no control over the glass texture. This unique feature stems from the skill of the artisanal process.

The Soda coffee table was a collaboration between Yiannis Ghikis and the Italian brand Miniforms.
