These Tables Take Inspiration from Japanese Design

These abstract marble tables are made up of circles that are cut into unconventional shapes.

The two different tables were made by Mexican design studio 'mob' and were designed to make the owner rethink the way marble can be used and interpreted. The 'Maburu' abstract marble table is circular and looks like it has been cut down the middle and the remaining marble is used to support the table, while a brass bar joins the two different sections together. The 'Porin' table comes in small or large sizes and appears to be folded in half, while a large wooden block supports it.

These unusual tables function as bold art pieces while doubling as practical home furnishings.
