RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Bibliographic and website search was conducted in user values and ergonomically added assets for a coffee table. The main emphasis is placed on storage, keeping away items and belongings while having them easily accessible, a coffee table that can be used simultaneously by all family members including kids, available manufacturing technology for low cost production and easy assembling and relocating without using tools.

CHALLENGE:
Four different compartments are locked in place using a laser stenciled 5mm thick aluminum sheet. The slots enable its vertical sliding, while it rests on two deep rectangular cuttings on the opposing cubicle faces. The same technique is used for the 4mm thick top modules that create four different sizes of service trays. The industrial feeling of aluminium is counterbalanced by vibrant Pantone colors, in Cyber yellow, Green vegetation, Web blue and Tomato Red.
