d*s reader karim cherif of sent over this beautiful custom table that was designed for his firm, united 135. karim explains,
"It was designed by Tessa Kuyvenhoven, a graduate in Interior Design. And the illustration was done by Bobby Pola (a.k.a. Simon Buijs). What I wanted was a table that could fit into my new office, that reflected the creative flow that we have going here. Tessa came up with a couple of designs, and we sat down to merge some elements into a new design. The only thing I told the illustrator was that I want the illustration and the table to be one piece. I didn't just want an illustration on top of the table... but they needed to be dependent on each other. So he came up with a Jellyfish design: Cassiopeia. When you look closely you will see all kinds of elements that are part of what we do."very cool. i love an inspirational table design...makes me want to paint on my old ikea pieces. also, check out the striped fridge in the back of the photos. so cool.
