    Liquid Glacial comprises a series of tables resembling ice-formations made from clear and coloured acrylic. Their design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic.

    The pristine geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, which seem to pour from the horizontal through an intense vortex that forms the table legs. The transparent acrylic material amplifies this perception, adding depth and complexity through a flawless display of infinite kaleidoscopic refractions.

    The form is of its creator; a design that does not compromise functionality or ergonomic requirements and a coherent evolution of Hadid’s architectural narrative exploring movement through space.
