The concept behind 2Stools by Nir Meiri certainly is unusual but this is the source of the project's appeal and its genius. It may not be the convention to store seating inside abstractly constructed coffee tables yet the suggestion is undoubtedly a functional one.

What appears to be an enormous block of wood has been cut into the vague form of a rectangular prism with four slots laterally excised. These gaps in the material allow for the snug placement of a pair of four-legged stools. They sit slightly above the surface of the block with their plushy cushioned tops.

Basically, 2Stools by Nir Meiri can be used when stacked or separated. It makes a comfortable bench or a quirky set of seats with a side table.
