Product news: these coffee tables with interlocking wooden legs by German studio Ding3000 have been put into production by Danish brand Normann Copenhagen (+ slideshow).
Ding300s's design is based on brain-teaser puzzles that join three pieces of wood together as one to form what looks to be an inseparable knot.
"The three legs seem to pierce through each other in an impossible way and our intention is to draw attention to this almost magical detail," say the designers. "That is also why we have chosen a transparent top, so the table's key focus point is the joining of the legs".
The coffee tables are assembled without any screws or tools and the pieces of oak simply slot together to create a single sculptural form, which becomes the base for a glass tabletop. The base is held firm due to specific shapes cut into each individual leg.
The legs come in natural, orange or black, and the top is available in transparent or smoked glass.
We've featured a variety of coffee tables, including Glimpt's Peruvian hand-carved wooden design, Foster + Partners' base created by stretching a perforated disk of steel and Reinier de Jong's coffee table for REK which can be expanded by sliding out sections in any direction.
