floppy disk table by axel van exel + marian neulant

‘floppytable’ by axel van exel and marian neulantdimensions: W27.56″ x H25.59″ x D17.72″ cm

 

 

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 diskswhich 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.
