I-Beam is a fabulous new creation by the legendary French designer Jean-Marie Massaud for Glas Italia. Inspiration for the design came from the sleek steel support beams which are used in construction.
The collection is composed of low tables / benches and this chaise longue, obtained by gluing together three slabs of smoked glass, so that they look like a joist. The top-seat and the base are in 12 mm thick tempered glass, whereas the vertical support is in laminated glass. The chaise longue has the seat in curved glass, supported by a vertical shaped element. Although the glass junction is very small and linear, the adoption of high resistant structural gluing enables the use of these elements as seats. The collection is completed by removable cushions in a black colour fabric.
