Prototype Wood Mixtape Coffee Table

You probably remember those old-fashion cassette tapes that you used to put your music on a while ago. They are no longer used and they have become a part of history. However, for most of us, they are also a part of our history and a lot of memories are linked to this particular item. If you enjoyed making mixtapes for your friends, then you’ll probably find this table a real treasure.

This unique coffee table designed by Jeff Skierka is a replica of a cassette tape. It’s made of reclaimed maple, walnut and Lucite with a plexiglass top. It’s the first prototype for this design. The table is a 12:1 scaled replica of the tape we used to carry around in our pockets. It’s indeed a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture that would make a unique addition to any home. It’s also something worth to be displayed in public spaces as well.

The design of the table is very clever. Not only that it’s an exact replica of the cassette tape but the shape and design of this item allowed the creator of this unusual piece of furniture to include practical storage space without changing the original design. The table sits on a transparent base and also has a transparent top. The only element that stands out and becomes apparent is the replica of the tape itself. It seems to be floating in the air. The prototype’s dimensions are 47.25″ x 30″ x 5″. The future versions of this table will be made of high grade plywood with a variety of ply combinations and a glass top. And to make things even more accurate and impressive, the table is completely reversible, just like the tape.
