David Pickett is a product design student studying at The Cleveland Institute of Art. He developed the Nook Coffee Table after being inspired by the idea a bookshelf crash landing into a coffee table creating a “4th leg.”

The integrated bookshelf acts as a balance for your heavy volumes of antiquity. The complex geometry of the design conveys an illusion of floating, in effect, enticing the viewer to investigate how the coffee table balances. The geometry also provides sufficient foot room on all four sides. The nook is large enough for books, magazines, laptops, and even your extra pillows! Constructed from soft maple hardwoods and finished in a natural Tung Oil.
