Climate change, loss of biodiversity, deforestation and biochemical flow have already been realized, leaving us at the precipice of an uninhabitable world.
The new Holocene Coffee Table by Modify Furniture is designed as a commentary on the current environmental issues. The Holocene Table is designed as 5 discrete bamboo rings balanced perfectly, yet seemingly tenuously on delicate anodized aluminum supports.
Aah, the esteemed Saarinen table. Beautiful, sleek and versatile, but at nearly $3,000, it`s quite the investment. Though $500+ isn`t a bargain-basement price either, Lippa`s version of the classic design is certainly more attainable and just as attractive.
As interesting as the process is, and as charmed as the products` names are, the end product is alluring. If you`re a fan of the glass table, you just may want to stop by Artware Editions your next trip to the West Village to take a look.
