Designed by James Ian Killinger, a 2008 graduate of Iowa State University’s College of Design the Kersplat Coffee Table is a pure example of creativity. A piece of furniture so simple, but so original, guaranteed to get attention. Now here are a few words about this coffee table from James : “A liquid’s life is an ephemeral one. Its molecular structure determines that its movements are transient and fleeting—chaotic, yet bound by the laws of physics. There is a simple elegance to the moment liquid collides with a denser surface. I wanted to hold onto that moment a little longer.Capture it. Examine it.B elieve it or not, this piece was actually crafted out of poplar wood. After shaping the individual “splatters tendrils,” they were joined to a base and the piece was finessed further. Ensuring that each of the four contact splatters were level and even was paramount. The table was then painted in a high gloss red and topped off by a custom cut piece of glass.
