TOPO table from NONDesigns

NONDesigns, a California-based studio specializing in creating products through non-conformist solutions, recently unveiled the TOPO table at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair). According to lead designer Scott Frankly – "We got tired of perfectly flat tables so we made this series called TOPO." In case you are wondering what that implies, the TOPO is a “corian table with removable basins.” It has a surface with intermediate plastic inserts that have been molded over rocks, creating functional landscapes that can be placed either face-up or down. These inserts can then be filled with soil and plants or with utensils, fruits etc.

The design claims to be completely customizable - in the sense that one can choose how much of the table-top real estate goes towards the decorative and how much towards functionality. The idea sounds intriguing, but the price tag of $940 will probably appeal to the taste of avant-garde buyers alone.
