The Sarinesca Coffee Table Embodies Animalistic Physical Qualities

 - Jun 20, 2012
Perhaps it is the sagging belly and the eccentric slender supports that make the Sarinesca Coffee Table so endearing. The odd object looks like the bottom half of some strange mythical creature. Seemingly poised to amble off to the next room, the attention-seeking piece of furniture would look most at home in the center of the living room.

Jordi Borras Albert's concept has been left with a stripped white appearance, likely a reflection of its Corian materiality. Designed for Dupont at Manuelsaez & Partners, it shows off a formal fluidity that's true to its manufacturing.

Five legs give the Sarinesca Coffee Table an engaging awkwardness and its rounded underside seems to welcome questions. One then discovers that the fanciful furnishing conceals a quirky storage compartment just beneath its tabletop surface.
