Siegel’s Water Table
There’s something more fanstastical than real about Water Table, designed by architect Robert Siegel for Get Real Surfaces. Made of precast concrete, and supported by three steel legs, the table is silky to the touch.
A channel in the middle of table can be filled with ice to cool bottles, or whatever you want to set in there. The feature is inspired by the gardens of Renaissance Italy, when streams were rerouted to create terrace fountains.
If concrete can elicit visions of silk and Italian villas, it can also call to mind their steep price tags. Water Table retails for $18,000.
