‘mixtape cassette table’ by jeff skierka



celebrating the 50th anniversary of the audio cassette, american designer jeff skierka has developed ‘the mixtape table’ — a 12:1 scale replica of the device is made of high-grade baltic birch plywood with maple veneer, solid american walnut throughout, and a hand-applied oil finish.


each coffee table is built to order, hand-assembled and finished in seattle. the piece is completely reversible – sides A and B, stamped and numbered on one side. conceived with a 3/8 inch polished edge with a glass top , the surface sits on a custom platform with hand-bent steel powder coated legs.
