As a sculptural coffee table, Robby Cuthbert's Contour Coffee Table is aptly named. The unique table is made from an unusual frame of bamboo and steel cables, which gives it a form that looks almost like an undulating roller coaster. Rather than being made from four straight and boring rectangular wood pieces, the table is made up of S-shaped wooden pieces that are held together with the cables.

Cuthbert's design was initially developed when he was a senior in college, but it took several years for him to realize it as a tangible piece of furniture. Although the table is held together by tension, the table looks as relaxed and free-flowing as a series of rolling ocean waves.
