The It Barrel Opens Up to Reveal Nested Items for Eating and Drinking

The It Barrel definitely does not take a simple form, otherwise we might discover more objects a little bit like it. This design is certainly unique, taking an organic shape that's comparable to that of a wasp nest.

Designer Tcherassi Vilató was thinking outside of the box with this wonderfully rounded creation. With a structure of metal, the hybrid side table is clad with wooden tiles that interlock to afford a nearly spherical effect. The continuous surface is smooth and warm, yet it hinges open into a pair of winged drawers and reveals a bowl-like bottom where you can stash even more.

Gilded with gold or bronze on the inside, the It Barrel expresses itself as an object of luxury. It can be used as a miniature cocktail bar, or as an opulent storage compartment for all sorts of things.
