Design Meet the Past, Present and Future Designers: Chris Hardy. By Lauren Guerrieri | May 16, 2013 Meet Chris Hardy, one of the designers we'll be showcasing this week at WantedDesign. Hardy gave the Helix Tables an odd number of legs – the coffee table has five and the side table has three – and placed the brass castings to radiate out from the center. The result is an asymmetrical form that looks different from every angle. The cast brass has a natural finish that’s soft and not highly polished. Thick and durable, the glass tabletop is slowly cooled in a kiln to relieve internal stresses after it’s formed. The coffee table is available with a round, square or oval tabletop. Join us at WantedDesign to see Hardy's work in person.
