One of the lingering images in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 was the sight of the enormous mass of rubble left behind following the collapse of the Twin Towers; this memory has now lent itself towards inspiring the design of a circular table that is designed to be both beautiful and mournful at the same time. Called the Earth Table, this table's iron legs are designed to evoke memories of the iron rubble left behind on that fateful day.

This circular table also features an absolutely gorgeous top which consists of randomly shaped slabs of wood that look a bit like continents on a map of the Earth, something which both looks stunning and also aims to promote the ideals of togetherness and peace.
