The Nobu Miake Torque Console Looks Like it's About to Collapse

Deceptively sturdy, the Nobu Miake Torque table design has a messy, jumbled look that will entice those who covet the idea of controlled chaos.

Two shelves that are reversible give this small console an asymmetrical look as they twist away from each other and the different colors change up the look depending on which one is placed on top. A small storage space between the tabletops is just right for storing documents and important papers while coffee or snacks can be placed safely on top. Short, stubby legs purposefully stick out in all directions for a haphazard look that seems completely imbalanced.

As precarious as it seems, the Nobu Miake Torque table is perfectly stable and can support fairly heavy weights. Stats for Precariously Twisted Tables Trending: Older & Mild
