Looking for a coffee table that doesn’t need a stack of photo books to get your guests’ attention? Then consider Shigeichiro Takeuchi’s Tricom for interior brand Commoc.

Its glass surface reveals an unusual base that is simple yet solid. A single steel pipe curves and swerves to form a minimalist form that seems to change shape depending on which angle you view it from. It’s like a 3-D continuous stroke of calligraphy — and that stroke is available in either black, white or green. The Tricom coffee table sells for ¥57,750 and can be purchased online from Generate Design.
