Pieke Bergmans, a Dutch designer, created a special edition of her Crystal virus series for Droog Design. Crystal Virus: Massive Infection (originally named 'The Last Supper') is a maple table that has had crystal vases burned into it to create amoeba-like marks that encompass the table's surface.

30 amorphous crystal forms that can double as vases invaded the table and were created on the tabletop by searing hot crystal bubbles into the wood. The defining black marks give the table its infectious image. Thus Bergmans Crystal Virus: Massive Infection turns something that should be considered destructive into functional art and design.
