Falling Furniture: Tilted Wood & Glass Coffee Table Design
Who can say they did not enjoy the stack-and-tip game of dominoes as a child? Captured in a kind of tragic slow-motion sequence, that same sensation is strangely converted from a toy concept into this clever contemporary table idea.
While it might look simple, this modernist exercise in “physics and play” takes a single craftsman an impressive six weeks to construct by hand, as each attachment, angle and position must of course be carefully accounted for – not so simple as our childhood playthings after all.
While it is also available with a solid wooden top surface, it would seem silly to put so much money (four figures from SSID) into something and not be able to see its most striking feature from every angle – thus the glass top with wood trim seems to serve the design best.
