Design by Karim Rashid, 2006.
Made in Italy by Tonelli.
The intriguing angles of the low Dekon 2 Coffee Table come together in a work of art that resembles a jewel. The continuity of the thick tempered glass surface, with multiple sheets of glass, requires a special welding process perfected by Tonelli. Edges and corners meet the highest quality standards and stringent quality controls, while enhancing the inherent beauty of the crystal glass.
This striking table can be placed directly on the floor or may be lifted up on the included feet.
Made of thick shatterproof glass, which is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, the Dekon 2 Coffee Table by Tonelli is resistant, sturdy and totally safe.

Tonelli manufactures furnishing items and designer objects in glass. The company was founded in the mid-1980s and is the result of a deep and lasting passion for research and experimentation.
Glass is one of the oldest, most fascinating materials that the history of mankind has to offer. It is fragile yet resistant, solid yet light, beautiful and at the same time, functional. With a minimum thickness of 0.5" - 0.6" for supporting structures and 0.3" - 0.4" for tops and doors means that glass is totally resistant and sturdy and therefore, totally safe. Glass is also non-toxic and environmentally friendly.View other products from Tonelli
