Structual coffee table
Furniture is not just a mere component in the house, but also something staying with you for many years. That is why, I believe it's important to design simple and practical, yet humorous furniture in your home to give you some comfort.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Klotz is a coffee table that has a glass top and wooden legs made of six separate parts.
The legs have a block structure constructed by bracing three legs with the other three legs, producing a simple, sculptural form.
For the wooden legs, I used two different kinds of oak wood which
have different colors. the one with lighter color is light oak, and
the one with darker color is black oak. By combining two different
colored woods, it creates interesting contrast and makes the
structure of legs more clearly.

In the beginning of the project, I did research about furniture with smart and beautiful structures.
The big challenge of this project was how I could bring humour to the living room.
