BOOPOP & MOXBOX
Posted By Jill Fehrenbacher On June 21, 2005 @ 4:00 am In green furniture | 2 Comments
Design company Moxbox  has a thing for swingin’ sixties names like “Moxipop” and “Chromosomo” And, as one might expect from a company with a “Barberella” screen, Moxbox’s furniture would look right at home alongside a hanging bubble chair  on the set of Austin Powers. But although Moxbox has a certain 60’s pop aesthetic, their beautiful furniture transcends mere retro nostalgia. This Boopop  (huh?) coffee table is composed of 2 different layers of bamboo plywood which have been overlaid and cut in concentric circles. The grain of lighter bamboo runs perpendicular to the grain of the darker bamboo underneath, enhancing the optical effect created by the circles. A layer of resin over the top of the table smoothes the whole thing out into a flat surface.
