A lip circles the edge of the Around Coffee Table as if Danish designer Thomas Bentzen intended to personify the inanimate, modern object and create what looks like a bow-tie-wearing butler waiting to serve. 

aroundBentzen has said, “I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use—and simply create joy while not.” The table series, manufactured by Muuto, continues his adventure into Scandinavian design values. View it at the Danish Design Store.
