Oh, John Brauer.... such a clever gentleman, and inventor of the Grand Illusion Table (shown above). I'm fascinated by clear furniture. A fascination most probably sparked by the first time that I had ever seen Phillippe Starck's Louis Ghost Chair.
And, more recently the clear chiavari chair.
These pieces ignite a sort of Alice in Wonderland wit and playfulness while paying homage to their pedigreed provenance. They may be trendy, dated, passé, etc., but I can't help but adore them.
