From its cracked surface to its fragmented appearance, hence its apt name, the table is nevertheless a minimalist work of art fit for a contemporary home.

Designed by Based Upon, an industrial design studio based in London, England, the Fragmented Crack Coffee Table falls into a theme of time in addition to nature due to its seemingly eroded form. Nevertheless, the designers write, that it "expresses the magnificence and beauty of nature when edited by man into a geometric form and presented in opulent bronze."
