zaha hadid's transparent 'liquid glacial table' is a fluid furniture fixture resembling two interlocking puddles of clear water poured through three spouts,
frozen in time and turned upside down. the process of production perfectly captured the subtle rippling patterns that ever so slightly bend light, giving
a subtle delicate texture within the glass-like acrylic surface. the table is milled and hand polished to capture the refractions of the world that surrounds it. the project is nominated for the design museum's 'furniture' category for the sixth annual designs of the year alongside:
'100 chairs' by marni; 'a-collection' by ronan and erwan bourellec for hay; 'corniches' by ronan and erwan bouroullec for vitra; 'engineering temporality'
by studio markunpoika; 'future primitives' by muller van severen; 'gravity stool' by jolan van der wiel; 'medici chair' by konstantin grcic for mattiazzi;
're-imagined chairs' by studiomama (nina tolstrup and jack mama); 'tié paper chair' by pinwu; 'the sea chair' by studio swine & kieren jones;
'well proven chair' by james shaw and marjan van aubel.

the smooth static top surface is made kinetic by the frozen movement within the material, turning into vortexes at the legs
