The proportions of the M-Coffee Table are determined by Le Corbusier ‘s modular man and the Golden Section. This table is a study in scale; conceived as a basic rectangular mass hollowed out to create architectural details at key points. Steps are carved from one corner and on the other is a ‘space’ which creates a recess for books and art objects. An oculus was carved into the ‘ceiling’ of this ‘space,’ bringing illumination, like a miniature Pantheon, to its interior. The M-Coffee Table features steps for the display of items, a book niche, and removable glass components recessed on the surface of the table.

Le Corbusier’s modular man and the Golden Section define the proportions of the M-Coffee Table. This table is a study in scale; conceived as a simple rectangular mass hollowed out at key points producing architectural details. Steps are carved from one corner and a ‘room’ is on the other, creating a recess for books and objet d’art.
