The D01 Table Appears to Take an Impossible Form in Your Family Room

Pieces like the D01 Table really challenge your expectations of typical home furnishings. Practically speaking, it would be just as effective to combine a wooden panel with a few underside supports -- yet this would arguably be far less exciting.

Instead, Teïva Bodereau cast a concrete base for this coffee table that takes an apparently impossible shape. It's been molded with a pair of perpendicular curves that combine into a graceful arching shape with upturned corners. It's upon these tips that the delicate glass tabletop perches, looking a little precarious, yet perfectly aligned. The D01 Table is more than a piece of furniture, it's a sculpture, a stimulator of the imagination and a reminder that things aren't always what they seem.
