Believed to have originated in Ethiopia, coffee is now consumed worldwide. The fad has reached our home and it’s a regular beverage we sip on daily basis, since time immemorial. Whenever we talk of coffee, cafes, and people, one thing that binds them together is a coffee table.
There are multiple coffee table designs that have been introduced in the market from traditional rectangular wooden tables to obnoxious steampunk furniture. But, what we bring to focus today is an Arc coffee table designed by Ditte Vad and Julie Begtrup for Woud Design.
Poised on three slender legs, the Arc table would form a perfect centerpiece of your room. The table derives its name from the mathematical concept of a smooth curve joining two points in a circle. The coffee table looks like a sturdy structure with a rotatable top. The user can simply rotate the upper lid to open or close. Below the tabletop is ample storage to keep basic home accessories.
This reminds me of Cox and Cox’s burnt oak tabletop which doubles as an internal storage unit when its surface lifts up on a hinged metal arm. We don’t have a metal arm here, but with a twist of the finger, you can let the table open to access the things you have placed within.
Measuring 66cm in diameter, the table is available in multiple finishes and sizes. Available in white pigmented ash, the 66cm table can be purchased at $733 on Finnish Design Shop.
