Called Plug-In, the table features hand-crafted ceramic items which are removable but unable to stand up on their own.

This concept is the basis of this project, which consists on a collection of objects that need furniture to hold them, in such a way that the furniture gets a new identity.

Who doesn´t have a bookcase with a Swedish name? For many people, the way of being different, could be to transform their furniture by using these pieces.

With this project I pretend to involve people in the creative process by using very simple procedures, and always achieving unique results.

Mirrors, vases and candle holders fit in and on the furniture, becoming part of it.

    Very poetic, although I'm not sure about the actual shape of the table itself —it doesn't feel as 'warm' as the rest of the objects.
