POND an irresistible coffee table.
Design: Mia Cullin 2013
When what is functional is beautiful and decorative too, its appeal becomes almost irresistible. POND is a table that you can easily move around. There are actually two tables in various heights and size, a crossover between coffee table and tea trolley, where the wheels and the handle define the function. The design is uncomplicated; the milled tabletop and the leather-covered handle are the most eye-catching features. The table’s shape has been inspired by a lily-pad, triggering positive associations with one of nature’s most iconic supporting surfaces. There’s a 1950s feel to it, as well.
Both in the shape and the choice of materials. Modern. Retro.
