GIDEร… table

I usually try not to post Ikea products because it’s definitely the cliche “cheap modern” design option, but I really do think this is a great table for the price. I would use it as a large desk.

This is pretty amazing.

“Archipi is a sculptural presence in high-gloss lacquered wood.

Originally based on a request from a customer, the challenge was to create a table without any visible joint, complete in high-gloss. The resulting piece is a product of a several week process, equally at home as a coffee table or in the garage next to your ferrari.”

Topo Table

So, all this week you’ll be seeing bits and pieces of things we saw at the ICFF that we thought were worth mentioning, and I think it fitting that this table is among the first of the posts. I do believe it might be my favorite thing, or at least among the top five. Small plastic inserts drop into the table to form little landscapes that are interchangable. Plants are shown, but think of all the other possibilities…

(note: each piece is custom made)
