MEW / modular coffee table

MEW
MEW

Inspired by traditional Japanese wood joinery and modern cutting technology capabilities, MEW is a simple, versatile and interactive modular coffee table that can be rearranged to suit different individuals needs with its three smaller separate tables.

MEW is a design responese to the smaller living situations in the cities where a multi-functional furniture is more practical and useful to its users’ needs.

Made from water-jet cut locally sourced Hoop Pine plywood, MEW uses various types of unique slotted connections that allow it to be easily assembled without fixtures or fittings and comes flat-packed for easier transport and storage.
