This Resin and Fiberglass Table by Harow Replicates the Surface of the Moon

October 6, 2017

Kate Sierzputowski


Using digital files pulled from NASA’s archives, French design studio Harow designed a table that replicates the real topology of the moon’s surface. The Apollo 11 Table features a sculpted fiberglass slab in the form of a lunar crater. Covering this thick segment is a layer of resin, which allows one to fully view its dips and crevices while providing coverage to the uneven terrain. The brass and aluminum alloy feet also pay homage to the many Apollo missions, parts that put a modern spin on the Lunar Excursion Module‘s original landing pads.

You can view more of Harow’s designs, including these Apollo landing wall works, on their website and Instagram. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Wood Tables and Wall Art Embedded with Glass Rivers and Lakes by Greg Klassen

May 11, 2017

Christopher Jobson

Inspired by his daily experience of life in the Pacific Northwest, artist and designer Greg Klassen (previously) fabricates one-of-a-kind tables featuring blue glass rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. The topographical studies mimic bodies of water seen from an aerial view, but the twisting blue pathways are often defined by the wood pieces he selects. While the majority of Klassen’s work serves as functional art, he’s also begun to create more isolated wood and glass sculptures mounted on walls.

Several of Klassen’s most recent tables are available through his online shop, and you can explore more pieces from the last few years on Instagram and Facebook.

Furniture designer Alexandre Chapelin (previously) wows us again with this new pair of tables that mimic a cross-section of an underwater reef. The Saint Martin-based artist uses natural stone encased in a translucent blue resin to “bring the ocean into your living room.” You can see more views of the new tables on Instagram.

Cypriot-based designer Stelios Mousarris conceived of this fun glass tabletop that blasts into the air aboard five wooden rockets. The designer was inspired by the nostalgia of his own childhood toy collection and he tried to embody the “retro” look with cartoon-like puffs of clouds at the base of each rocket. The table combines a variety of techniques from 3D printing to lathe work, and each rocket position is customizable. The piece is currently available for pre-order through his website.

A Novel Drawer Covered in Wooden Scales Appears to React When in Use

April 13, 2016

This fun table designed by Juno Jeon adds an unexpected twist to one of the most common pieces of furniture: a simple drawer. Covered with a dense grid of scale-like plates the drawer appears to bristle as you open it, flipping each consecutive set of scales to the reverse side. The “Pull Me to Life” table was designed as part of Jeon’s “Movement” series where he imagined what reactions different pieces of furniture in his house might have if they were living creatures. You can see more of the designer’s furniture concepts on Designboom.

New Marble and Resin Lagoon Coffee Tables by Alexandre Chapelin

Designer Alexandre Chapelin of LA Table (previously) has been hard at work producing more tables as a part of his Lagoon series, tables that appear as aquamarine environments with secluded beaches. His recent addition is Lagoon 55, a coffee table version of his original. These tables are formed from resin and marble which is sliced in layers in order to create the appearance of depth within the table’s sea. The resin is then poured overtop, and has a different formula at each level to give the appearance of several shades of blue.

Chapelin cannot produce two identical tables, so no work will ever be the same. This is both because of the difficulty of the tables’ form, and Chapelin’s personal belief that each piece should be completely unique. You can see more of LA Table’s work on their website.

Cut Travertine Marble and Resin Merge to Create ‘Lagoon’ Tables

December 29, 2015

Designer Alexandre Chapelin of LA Table designed this intriguing series of three tables he refers to as Lagoon Tables. Each table is formed from a carved travertine base to which he adheres a special resin that forms volumes of water that appear to slice through each piece. The tables are undoubtedly influenced by Chapelin’s immediate surroundings on the small Caribbean island of Saint Martin where his studio is based. You can see more of his work here.
