Coot Side Table
Coot side table takes major inspiration from nature’s shapes. The top of the Coot table was inspired by the simple geometry of a petal; it is a perfect motif for generating a variety of different models from one single form. The support structure is designed to allow the top to open up over a chair or sofa, a particularly useful feature when using a laptop computer.
