Hasan Agar — the head designer of Flying Cavalries, a UK-based design company — recently sent us these photos of his London Map Side Table. As the name suggests, the London street map is engraved on a metal surface on the tabletop. Developed after many years of living in London, Agar designed the table to be functional, yet also challenge users emotionally.

From the product description: “If you follow the gaps and solid surfaces, you might find yourself in an unforgettable place filled with wonderful memories whilst enjoying your warm cup of tea, cosy on your sofa. The city’s landmarks are also highlighted on the lace effect metal surface.”

“This detailed side table has quirky triangular section legs which are made from solid beech with a matte finish. The surface of the table is laser cut with a matte powder paint finish and comes in three different options: black, white and watercolors. It comes as a flat-pack assembly; the legs are easily screwed onto the top.”

We love how the laser-cut pattern projects onto the floor. What do you think of this table? [Photos and information provided by Hasan Agar on behalf of Flying Cavalries]
