Subverted materials.

Our new range of one-off glass tables is almost ready to smash.

Designed (and engraved by hand) by Qz Zhang-Cowie and Bruce Cowie exclusively for Hilton Qiu Products, each table is completely unique, and painstakingly hand finished.

The range will launch shortly with two different tables: The 1.2metre x 1.2metre glass topped ‘Mathcrack’ coffee table, featuring an incredibly complex hand engraved illustration inspired by mathematics and Algorithmic Art. At first glance the table looks like smashed glass, but on closer inspection reveals an array of delicate line work.

The second is the smaller 600mm x 850mm ‘Tarot Death’ prayer table, featuring a 16th Century Tarot Card design, engraved and sandblasted by hand.

We will post images as soon as the engraving work is 100% complete, and the tables will be viewable at the Design is a good idea store.
