The top and legs form one piece and create storage for magazines in slots running down two sides.

Gorge / 2009

‘Gorge’ is a coffee table with a shape of a gorge.

Designing it, I strived to put it in a form so that elements composing of a table such as a top board and legs may become one element, not individual elements.

The shape of a gorge folded in a V shape itself plays a structural role of supporting the top board of the table, and plays a role of holding/keeping magazines or books as well as completing an aesthetic form of the table.
