Milan-based design studio Daevas' coffee tables are made out of recycled materials and adorned with Persian and Islamic patterns. There are two kinds of tables, 'NoDo' and 'Coffee Table for Singles'.

The NoDo table has an abstract top surface pattern inspired by decorative Islamic patterns. The combined shapes consist of lines that radiate and intersect, and are similar to the mathematically inspired designs used to decorate architectural elements such as entrances, arcs, window frames and door frames in traditional Islamic architecture.

The 'Coffee Table for Singles' also bears star-like geometry that has long been valued in Persian architecture. The center of this table's cement surface bears a hole through which a glass bottle can be inserted. Filling the bottle with water adds mass and stability to the structure.

The Daevas coffee tables were designed by Asia Samimi and Nima Fradi.
