Square root table

In a venn diagram of the modern architecture and design magazine Dwell and Mathematica Journal, this coffee table shaped like a square root symbol would sit in that diagram’s overlap area. The designer Josh Tuminella explains:

It was inspired by the mid-century bent ply tables. One of its key features – the magazine rack – acts as storage and structural support for the table. Another feature is the bent solid aluminum leg. It was important to have a different material than the table top. This emphasizes the square root shape and gives the illusion of a floating table top. It was important to have all of the grain pattern match through every bend to illustrate it was made from one continuous piece.
