The glass occasional table, Klaar, is a collaboration between Leolux, Studio Truly Truly and the National Glass Museum in Leerdam.

Klaar adds a new form of craftsmanship to our collection, which is very close to our hearts. Because there are many similarities between glassblowing and producing furniture in the way that Leolux does. Expression plays a significant role in the product and elements such as technology, teamwork and experience are essential for both processes.

Nevertheless, glassblowing is a process with a unique character. It is more explosive, a performance in which function, timing and precision come together. This is all because of the nature of the material. Glass is dissolute, it never lets itself be totally controlled. Under the influence of temperature, heat and movement, it chooses its own way. And that’s exactly where the charm lies. Even when you always use the same quantities and colours, the pattern and colour gradient of each table are unique.

Studio Truly Truly designed three colour schemes for Klaar. Mottle is really intended as an eye-catcher with multiple distinct colours. This combination truly feels like a piece of art. The Lapis version combines different tints of blue. Some are transparent, while others are not. The result is slightly less complex in terms of colours, but the transparency effect is stunning. Finally, there’s Nougat, with its natural tints. White, almond, creamy; for a soft and modest look. But whichever colour you go for, the transparent glass is the ‘carrier’. There’s a layer of transparent glass between each layer of colour, so the colours seem to float. You see that very clearly when you look at the tables from an angle.
