Prism Table by Peter Pless

From a distance, there are few hints as to what hides beneath the surface of the Prism table, but the kaleidoscope effect is dazzling up close.

Prism

Among the eight prototypes by Peter J. Pless at Salone Satellite was Prism, a coffee table housing mirrored surfaces that reflect the colours inside and all around - a cross between a kaleidoscope and a gem.

Visage

Visage is a bold room divider seemingly made out of spools that rolls into itself to open, close, or stretch out. Made of spun aluminium modules that articulate in order to change up a space, Visage opens fully, to provide more privacy. This was the piece that drew visitors into Pless' stand, but once there, they had a lot to see.

Atelier

A familiar shape is scaled up and the oversized Atelier becomes almost a private space. The fabric shade offers shelter and protection, two soothing prospects at the end of the day.
