A Good Turn
The glass surface of this table showcases the gorgeous twisted metal base below: gaze through the top for an up-close look at those twists and the exceptional craftsmanship that we put into every detail. Twist is finished by hand, including the multi-step, careful process of attaching the base to the glass top. This table, which seats four to six people, makes a stunning addition to any office or home.
Twist’s bends may look simple, but getting the right rotation took time … and an understanding of physics. We experimented with different metals, different widths of metal, and different degrees of torque before we found the perfect twist.
It all started with a long train ride. As a way of passing the time, designer Thomas Schnur began playing with a strip of paper. After experimenting with various bends, turns, and coils, he considered applying the same principles to metal. His immediately thought of using the technique for a clothes hanger, but the design evolved to the base of table. Twist had taken shape.
