Garland Coaster and Trivets by Mauricio Affonso

Brazilian-born London-based designer Mauricio Affonso created these interlocking Garland coasters for Umbra that can be interlocked to create a trivet. The silicone material is heat-resistant and durable to protect your precious table from heat and/or condensation. I think the dual nature of this product makes it invaluable for entertaining. Comes in a set of four and will soon be available through Umbra.
