The Hana Table – Shige Hasegawa

Known as the Hana Table, by Shige Hasegawa. This design features a new construction which allows the top of the table to rest on 5 ingenious identical supports without the use of any screws or nails. When the legs are assembled they fit together in a flower pattern. It's a very beautiful coffee table which id like to have in my apartment.

These toys are in correspondence with his new exhibition at his Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Tokyo, in which his “inochi” sculptures will be on display. Takashi Murakami(artist) teamed up with toy manufacturer Medicom to produce an exact replica of the famous, albeit somewhat bizarre, sculptures. There will be only 200 pieces of these limited toys produced in each color for approximately $1500. A limited amount will be available for purchase at the exhibit with no word yet on a general release date.
