Stumble Upon Coffee Table by Alessandro Isola
Magic Carpet Table
Most people would see folds and creases as undesirable for rugs, but not for London-based Italian architect Alessandro Isola, who has created a coffee table out of a fold in a rug.
The Stumble Upon coffee table offers a strong visual contrast between the soft pile of the rug on one side and the hard glossy surface of its back, a corner of which is folded up like a wave to form a firm table for small objects. Perfect for aspiring magic carpet riders.
The Stumble Upon coffee table designed by Alessandro Isola has been shortlisted for an Architizer A+ award.
