A glass-top table supported by a group of what appear to boulders may be to your taste. If so, that’s cool. This one from Brazilian designer Domingos Tótora is called the Agua Table. But even if not, I thought the process of making the “rocks” from a paste of old cardboard boxes and glue was pretty interesting. I speculate that Sr. Totora actually started out by experimenting with the cardboard-paste process, figured out he could make fake boulders using it, then cast about for awhile trying to find a use for the cool fake boulders he’d just taught himself to make. Slapping a piece of tempered glass on it and calling it a coffee table has worked for a lot of other designers… [Thanks, Billy Baque!]
