The contour coffee table, designed by Robby Cuthbert, is the perfect sculptural coffee table. It’s like having a piece of gallery-worthy artwork in your living room, that also holds your drinks, just what you were looking for, right? Cuthbert’s architecturally inspired sculptural art, lamps and furniture are all held together by tension and made from bamboo and steel cable. His designs are based on the idea of tension and it’s role in the storing and releasing of energy, and the principle that if you take two pieces of curved wood and string cable between in a precise way, two forces are created; one that tries to pull the curves together, and one that tries to pull them apart. The result is beautiful wooden curves that are held completely stable, even though they do not touch. It’s a fascinating concept with stunning results, that would add a little artistry to any home.

The contour coffee table is also part of a kick-starter project, where Cuthbert is attempting to get the funds needed to produce his furniture on a larger scale. If he doesn’t meet his goal he doesn’t get a penny, so if you love the contour coffee table then definitely visit kick-starter.com to support his cause, and maybe get a table while you’re at it!
