Orbit by Nersi Nasseri is a stunning piece of furniture that could easily be mistaken for a work of art at first glance. Made out of a big hunk of wood, the middle has been hollowed out to create an unusual space to store a number of objects from books to wine bottles and more. Whether left horizontal or upright, it strikes an impressive figure in homes and offices.

Created for Sentient Furniture, a studio based in Brooklyn, New York, Orbit by Nersi Nasseri "combines the strong rectilinear lines of the external carcass with a striking oval shaped multi-functional internal space," as written by the designer. A versatile design, it can be used as a bench, television console and even a bookcase. Although mainly a natural wood finish, inside boasts striking colors.
