Illusory Paper-Folded Furniture

The Origami Coffee Table is Inspired by the Japanese Art Form

— October 15, 2013 — Art & Design
The origami coffee table by Martin Pitonak is the perfect way to add beautiful furniture to your living room.

This table adds sophistication and class to a room and will definitely be a statement piece your guests will admire at your next get-together. To keep the table off the ground, this one doesn’t use the standard four-legged design. Instead, the table sits on a base that is inspired by the art of origami. The wood is designed to look like it has folds in it, which will definitely catch people’s attention.

This minimalist design is absolutely breathtaking. The origami coffee table proves that you don’t need bold colors or eccentric pieces to add character to a room. This piece is perfect for a couple moving into their first home as it’s a mix of creativity and elegance.
