bangkok-based thinkk studio gives a new shape to auto glass by folding it into a side table. the colorful curved object consists of fluted and flat glass sheets sealing a layer of printed gradient tape between them creating such an effect, as if the translucent material disappeared from top to bottom.

the top of thinkk’s table has an oval shape and a 45 degrees flute orientation that both changes and creates a more elegant refraction. this piece presents a new set of possibilities in dealing with fluted glass in a refined way and acts as a medium to convey the surrounding environment from a different perspective.
