The Lithosphere Coffee Table takes its inspiration from the different layers of the Earths crust and upper mantle.
The table juxtaposes four stone slabs sourced from specific locations in Italy. The slabs are divided into four concentric elements, these nestle seamlessly inside each other, as in a Matryoshka. The sixteen elements can then be separated and stacked in differing combinations, producing four material variations of the table.
The design was carefully considered to maximise the use of each slab. By intermingling the four stones, variety is created, whilst simultaneously minimising waste.
