This amazing modern coffee table is inspired by the Sputnik-1, which carried living things from Earth into space. This model however is more fit to bear a book or a cup of coffee rather than orbit the Earth.
The St. Petersburg-based design studio, Plan S-23 takes the idea of a plant vessel meant to encapsulate and protect, and applies it to furniture design.
It is a very beautiful and simple detail that transforms the coffee table completely. Besides, the color of the plant with the white marble is simply stunning.
Five pieces fit together on the metal frame to form this coffee table-planter hybrid. Each element is designed to stand alone as well. When assembled, a pyramid forms within the frame and houses the herbs or flowers.
