ZigZag Coffee Table : Tsai Design Studio


Born in Taiwan and trained in South Africa as an architect, Tsai uses his eclectic and modern design sense to create the ZigZag Coffee Table.AA Beginning with a rigid angular form traditionally found in Chinese home doorframes and screens, Tsai has cleverly combined artistic sensibility and space saving awareness.AA As a functional piece, the interior of the ZigZag Table creates a series of shelves that can be used to hold any number of objects.AA What better way to clear the clutter and leave only clean looks and bold design behind ?

Tsaia€™s designs have won international praise, including the 2007 Red Dot Design Award and the 2007 Momentum/Topbilling Lifestyle DA©cor winner.AA In 2008, Tsai was honoured with the first ever a€oeMost Beautiful Object in South Africaa€A award for his nested bunk beds.AA The bunk beds, inspired by traditional Russian Matriochka dolls, were designed to pull out to accommodate a sofa, grandstand style seating, and five full sized beds, all the while fitting comfortably within a space of 36 square meters, the average size of a home in South Africaa€™s townships.AA Here, great design epitomizes practicality — the charitable foundation Shoebox Homes now manufactures his beds for use in orphanages across the country.
