the ‘floppytable‘ reminds us of a time when we once used diskettes for keeping digital file, except now as a life-size piece of furniture
for storing material things. the hot-rolled steel table by axel van exel and marian neulant features a ‘metal shutter’ typical of floppy disks
which can be slid across the length of the table revealing a storage area. each hand-made unit is lasered with a serial number as a mark of authenticity.
the table even has an arrow detail which on a real floppy disk is an indication of which way to insert it into a computer
