Opacity Collection

The Opacity furniture collection, consisting of a coffee table, tray, shelving units, console, and side table, is developed with the idea of utilising different glass types in order take advantage of the materials inherent qualities of transparency and reflection.

Designed by Seamus Kowarzik, the simple geometric forms and precise mitre joints enables you to fully appreciate the properties of glass. Viewing the objects from different angles provides a changing viewing experience through the layering of glass and the reflections of their environment.

​The glass cube was created as a side table and storage unit. The dark grey glass sides have mitred joints to enabling seamless surfaces. The dark sides are contrasted with a central shelf.

The tray was devised to create a simple storage area for small household or bathroom accessories. Dark grey glass is used for the sides of the tray to subtlety filter the contents they hold. A central fin divides the tray in two for organising its contents. The mirrored base reflects the walls of the tray and the surrounding space.
