Bucket Coffee Table by Coco Flip

Taking inspiration from Melbourne’s architects of the 1950s – primarily Roy Grounds and Peter McIntyre – the table’s design takes the simple geometries of a triangle and rectangle as the point of departure from which to explore proportion and interplay of materials, concrete and brass, in a functionally aesthetic coffee table that celebrates each material’s raw aesthetic.
