Cape Town artist Atang Tshikare and local studio Okha combined thick glass inserts with solid bronze frames to create these tables, which are inspired by African mythology.

Launched earlier this year, the two pieces –  a coffee table named Metsing, and a side table named Kaggen – are part of an ongoing collaboration between the artist and the design studio.

Each piece in the collection refers to a character in South African mythology. The Metsing coffee table is named after the Sotho term for “place of water”, and features three interconnected pool-like surfaces that form the table top.

The Kaggen side table translates as “praying mantis”, which is referenced in the design’s arthropodic form.

Both pieces are designed to look like pools of water suspended in mid-air, and feature hand-sculpted frames combined with thick glass inserts that form the tables’ surfaces.

The frames are coated in patinated bronze and were made using a technique named “lost wax” whereby metal is cast in a wax-coated mold. The glass was tinted blue, to make it appear more like water.

Both designs were hand-crafted by local artisans and are limited to 16 pieces. They are part of an ongoing fictional narrative co-written by Tshikare and his wife, which will be published in 2020.
