Mobius Strip Table

Having recently moved house and bought some more furniture I wish I’d come across this earlier.

My love of fascinating mathematical models and shapes is no secret, I’ve even featured an entire world on a mobius strip before, but this item strikes the balance between the theoretical and the physical.

Lots of maths and shapes work well in theory, or on paper, but how do you bring them into the real world?

Introducing the very real and tangible Console Möbius from Pierre Renart.

Made from carbon fibre and covered beautifully in rosewood it would make a great addition to my living room.  The only downside, as Gizmodo put it, would be “if you start dusting it you might never stop”!

    Interesting design. Is it a side table?

      I think of it as whatever you would like it to be. Be that side table, central coffee table, or something more sculptural in the hallway. I think it depends on the space in your home and if you could practice balancing coffee mugs on it!

    Very interesting! Is it more visual rather than functional?

    It’s beautiful, but I don’t think this is a true mobius band; it has two sides and mobius bands are one-sided. Maybe it is one-sided and I just can’t tell because of the angle of the picture. That’s possible.

      Oh thank goodness someone else saw that too. I can’t tell you how many times I visually traced the shapes on each of the differently angles pictures and still always found two discrete sides. I thought I must be really missing something, but no – this certainly evokes a Möbius strip but I don’t believe it actually is one.
