I am at that stage of my life where I literally need an empty belly as an inspiration to get up from the bed. But for Deniz Akay, inspiration flies everywhere. The German designer finds encouragement even in the meager of things and ends up producing a full-blown render out of it. This time around he has come up with a graceful coffee table that not only serves as a centerpiece to a room but also makes you feel like wrapping it around your body, just like a blanket.
“A piece of paper folded in the middle,” says Deniz while disclosing the inspiration for his latest artistry. Dubbed, the Cocoon coffee table, the furniture piece derives from classic Origami and folding techniques. Boasting a flat wooden plane, it features two opposite edges that are raised and curved to almost meet. Being one of the most minimalistic geometric shapes, this strange meet-up of two sides generates two functions making this design not only functional but also very aesthetically pleasing.
The raised edges form two top-level areas. The elevated surface is suitable to place your coffee mug and other nitty-gritty essentials. However, these edges never touch each other and leave a little gap in between where you are able to store books. This space underneath adds up as a nice additional feature that can be further used to store other items.
“I made the design keeping in mind that it appears as if the table is like hugging the stored items on the base level which gives you a very comfortable feeling,” tells Deniz to Homecrux. Thanks to bent plywood which is the perfect material to create this shape and give a cozy feeling at once. Still a render, for now, we’d have to wait, if anyone picks this up for the production stage.
