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 designers first showed the table as a prototype in 2011, along with cutlery based on the same joint, and it's now part of Normann Copenhagen's collection.

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.
