The Earth-Stripe table from Fluid Forms can replicate the shapes of your favorite landscapes.

The table has a surface that portrays the Earth's landscape from above, and buyers can customize the table with shapes that they prefer.

After a landscape is chosen, designers carve the shapes out in wood blocks before sanding, oiling and polishing the surface.
