These beautifully crafted tables come from Berlin based designers Ilot Ilov. While they are obviously finely designed and made with perfect care and attention to detail they contain a surprise. If you look carefully you can just about make out that there are mirrors concealed under the frames.

The mirrors are hidden in the recess of the crossing wooden frames of the chair’s support frame. The eye is tricked into thiking nothing is there.

As the viewer gets nearer to the table the illusion is shattered and the glass becomes more obvious. The designers say that they wanted to create a moment of surprise and of realization. With these extraordinary set of tables we think they’ve done just that!

Dotmaison has a wonderful collection of tableware for you to peruse – all tables are visible!
