Swedish glassmaking tradition meets high tech in this exquisite side table, consisting of a handblown, conical base attached to a hardened glass top using ultraviolet cured adhesive.
The first sketch of Sander was perhaps as simple as the Tim Robbins sketch of the hula hoop in the movie The Hudsucker Proxy. From above Sander is made out to just be three concentric circles, where the top, neck and base connects with the tabletop. In reality there is a lot more to it.
Sander’s cone base is mouth blown into a steel mold. When producing the first table a great deal of effort went into producing the mold and working with the glass blower, in order to get a consistent quality in the wall thickness of the cone.
“Glass is a fascinating material – clear, pure and uncomplicated visually. But when you get into the process of working with it, it’s incredibly complicated. There are many rules and restrictions, so I wanted to play with contrast of how it looks so simple but needs a lot of precision in the production process.” Chris Martin
Sander’s Top is made of a hardened furniture glass, which gives the table a nice mix of industrial glass and hand processed glass. The two parts connect at a thin neck, which was only possible by using a UV cured adhesive, actually stronger than the glass itself.
The table is named after Massproductions founder Magnus Elebäck’s son.

In 2009 two designers, sharing a neo-modernist vision of functional, elegant design, decided to break free of PR-driven product strategies to create a furniture company focusing on the interplay between object and context. In order to realise their vision, they assumed control of the entire production chain – manufacturing, sales and marketing. This pioneering approach has paid off handsomely, not only in design clarity, but also in distinguished awards, renowned clients and representation in the permanent collection of the Swedish National Museum of Arts.
