Mixtape Table by Jeff Skierka

Jeff Skierka created this coffee table that pays homage to a technology of the past: the cassette tape. I’m particularly fond of it because it reminds me of my youth… quickly hitting “record” on my boom box to try to capture “Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer as it played on the radio, popping those tapes into my portable tape players for a walk around the mall, and then into the stereo of my first car.

The table is a 12:1 scaled replica of a cassette tape and is made of reclaimed maple, walnut and Lucite (future versions will have glass). The table is completely reversible just like your favorite tapes (sides A and B). This is a first prototype and one of a kind table, lovingly crafted by Jeff over the course of five years!
