 Domeau & Peres designed a table which creates an illusion that it’s melting

Illusion is a handmade side table of 3 mm acrylic. All Illusion tables are handmade, individual and unique.The design gives the impression of a table cloth on a round table. However, the object uses the structural strength of the folded material to create a magical and surprising experience – an illusion. (Designer: Rafa Garcia)

Designed by Toni Grilo for an exhibition in Paris, the Precious Famine coffee table is made entirely of kitchen utensils

By expanding the mathematical principles of the 1960s engineering tool Spirograph  into 3-dimensions, and linking this with a newly developed computer programme and the latest 3D Printing technologies, its now as simple to create a table as it was drawing a spiral in the 1960s (Designer: Cohda Studio)

Using sophisticated 3D milling processes and a variety of materials such as polished aluminum, clear polyester resin and a dash of aerospace engineering, Lee J. Rowland created the Ripple Series, tables that appear to stop time in its rippling tracks.

Designer Dan McCabe describes his “Two Faced” coffee table as “strikingly modern”.
