Sputnik-5 coffee table-planter hybrid by Plan S-23

What could be the best way to pay homage to the pioneer satellite Sputnik? The satellite was the first to carry living organism from earth into the space. How about a cup of coffee with this historical memory? Plan S-23, a St. Petersburg-based- design studio, has paid homage through a table designed in the shape of Sputnik-5, which also houses plants or herbs within its frame.

The table consists of five separate elements, which are then assembled to form the complete replica sort of table. A pyramid protrudes on the upper surface at the top of the table, through which also peeps out the plantation. The top surface is made of marble, encapsulated inside the metal frames.

Well, that’s a cheerful, nostalgic design with a purpose.
