Concrete Coffee Table – Mobius Coffee Table

The Mobius Coffee Table name was inspired by the The Möbius strip or Möbius band.  A mobius strip is a surface with only one side and only one boundary component. The Möbius strip has the mathematical property of being non-orientable.

This concrete table was originally  designed by Designed by Sygrove Associates, Inc.  The creation of the Mobius Table is not so literal. The steel base is constructed of two mobius inspired legs that are band together to reveal a warped visual effect.  This table always gets a second glance to figure out how it was constructed and how the table top is sitting on the base.  In this recent project, our client custom ordered this Mobius Table and changed the thickness of the steel and the concrete.  The idea was to give a thinner look to the concrete and increase the thickness of the steel base.  This draws more focus on the steel base and creates a clean modern table.  The steel for the base was polished 1″ x 2″ rectangular tube stock with a stain finish.  The concrete table top portion was 40″ x 40″ x 1″ thick.  This table does come in standard sizes but like everything we fabricate at Trueform Concrete, it can be tailored to whatever size and color is needed.
