Coffee table

The concept involves taking a familiar object, in terms of both form and material, with which most people can identify and giving it an unexpected touch so as to add a fresh feeling to it. The object in this case is a flawless white box. The box is distorted by removing the sense of parallel from its width and length, thus creating unusual results when viewed from different perspectives.

The table’s construction is quite simple. It is made from 15mm thick MDF boards and it has a white lacquer finishing. Internally there is a wood frame on which four wheels with diameter 25mm are attached. This way the table can be moved around easily and also a sense that it is floating above the floor is created. The dimensions are as follows: side a 111mm, side b 91mm, side c 81mm, side d 67mm, height (including wheels) 30.5mm.
