hard-drive-coffee-table [1]

We love efficient, multi-tasking furniture here at Inhabitat, so we were excited to discover Grand Idea Studio’s Hard Drive Coffee Table [2]. The design recycles an original hard drive from an early storage device into a circular, industrial-looking coffee table. The center hub of the hard drive platter and the custom-created pedestal are both solid aluminum, covered with standard 1/4″ table glass.

Although the Hard Drive Coffee Table [2] is not for sale (yet), we found the creative reuse of old technology inspiring. We hope this clever idea motivates DIYers, recyclers, and other fans of technology and space-saving furniture to begin thinking about ways to combine home computing with home decor.

Grand Idea Studio, Inc [3]. is a product research and development firm that specializes in the invention and design of consumer electronics, video game accessories, and toys.
