Apart from being a table, In Vein also doubles as a mirror: the underside of the table is a reflecting hydro-formed sheet of stainless steel. When desired the table can be put straight up against the wall and be used as a mirror, or rather a reflecting sphere-shaped object. Through archaeological research it is known that the trestle table was sometimes painted on the underside. Whenever the tabletop was put straight up spectators were shown Biblical stories and had possibly a moment of (self) reflection.
