Papillon coffee-table

Papillon is a sculptural, yet functional coffee-table that solves table usage and storage or layout of books and magazines in an easy and elegant way. A single, flat element is combined into spatial structure, to be liberally disposed under a glass-top, thus providing inclined storage space that always brings its content into a loose order. While empty, supporting elements evoke leaves and open books in a random harmony that only subtly mutates through reading matter piling up inside.
