There's no need for a separate magazine rack and coffee table if you've got the Origami Table. This clever piece of furniture was inspired by the art of paper folding; the resultant creased form creates ideal places to set down drinks and stash all of your reading materials.

The roughly square shape of the tabletop is supported by a pair of legs fastened to two opposite corners. A deep and diagonal cleft through the center of Svyatoslav Boyarincev's product plunges down to the floor to reinforce stability. This triangular trough takes great advantage of the compact footprint of the Origami Table, welcoming the slotting of newspapers and books into the narrow wedge. The unique piece is made from beautiful panels of plywood, assembled into an angular and whimsically abstract piece of furniture.
