A solid structure built from resilient materials, the coffee table is also fully functional and contains gaps for magazines and books to be slotted into its additional spaces.

Design Brigade is the team behind this beautiful ‘Low Table’ – a gorgeous piece of furniture handcrafted from reclaimed sections of the Coney Island Boardwalk. The creative duo – Lila Baghzouz and Patrick Delorey – constructed the item to highlight the weathered planks of ipe wood, and they employed an assortment of wood lengths to create a unique and dynamic form. Design Brigade is one of 12 contemporary designers who were chosen to create pieces made entirely from reclaimed NYC lumber for the 12×12 Competition. The designers were selected by a panel of judges — including Inhabitat founder Jill Fehrenbacher — to fashion a series of fab designs from the beautifully weathered material.
