The Mizo Table does what an effective coffee table should be able to do: hold a beverage stably so that it will not slide or spill. This piece of furniture has a pair of flat and level surfaces, yet it comprises a deviating feature that actually increases the product's practicality.

Upon this kind of furnishing, you will often see stacks of newspapers, journals and books that may assume more area than necessary. Yasutoshi Mifune's efficient solution was to integrate a basic magazine rack into the design of the side table. There are two separate horizontal panels that make up the Mizo Table and, where they might have come together, they are instead divided by a deep trough. Slip your reading materials into this slit to optimize surface space.
