Kanagawa Kinetic Coffee Table

(YouTube link)

When is a table not a table? When it's a Strandbeest-inspired kinetic sculpture, of course. This table designed by William "Alex" Mecker is part clean-line modern and part Theo Jansen contraption. I like it.
The table is constructed of 298 pieces of laser cut Baltic Birch plywood, oak dowels, rubber “o” rings, and conduit that are set into an elegant & complex wave motion with a turn of the hand crank. The clear glass top makes for the perfect window to view the inner workings & measures at 50?x30?, offering plenty of usable space.
