Upon seeing the name of Alessi’s ‘Blow Up Table’, it makes you think of a balloon inflated table. In actual fact, it’s a fully constructed table that consists of a glass top with legs made of a series of stainless steel bars that’s been pieced together.
Designed by the Campana brothers, the idea is to create unique objects “to express the contradictions of urban chaos” and “give these objects an authentic character linked to the temperament of the population”.
The glass top and base aren’t actually attached together so the glass sits on top. Although the steel rods and wires look randomly put together, they’ve been constructed to ensure it holds and keeps the glass table top upright.
It’s sturdy as well as stable but it’s probably not the best piece of furniture to have when you have kids running around. You can clearly see it will be an accident waiting to happen.
With its small size, it’s perfect as a side or coffee table to hold small and light items especially when the idea is to fit this artistic creation into a designer home design. It makes a great feature and talking point in any room without taking up too much space.
