The Ripple Effect Tea Table by Korean designers Seo Jeonghwa and Hanna Chung is a modern vignette summarizing an Asian philosophy.
The simple piece of furniture is a graduation project for IM Masters Design Academy Eindhoven. It features a water layer on top, making ripples when the users move or even touch the cups and objects on it. The pleasant and calming effect also reflects the idea that small changes of individual objects can grow to a vast impact in a bigger context. The design of the table beautifully embodies this abstract belief and the cups and plates seem to be softly afloat the dark surface.
