The Re|Surface Table

Why can’t tables be more like light bulbs and underwear? You know … easy to change.
Introducing re|Surface – a table with modular reversible slats that release with a gentle upward push, then hold with a firm magnetic grip when returned back in any order to the steel frame – for a tabletop that changes on a dime, yet remains sturdy over time.
The re-arrangeable tabletop of every re|Surface table is composed of 16 magnetically modular slats. These slats are made from a eclectic variety of found & salvaged materials, such as reclaimed hardwoods, old vintage crates, vintage wood puzzles, and much more. Each slat is reversible, with 2 distinctly different sides made re-purposed woods, allowing thousands of possible tabletop combinations. For even further customization, a wide menu of additional re|Surface slats are available to mix & match for any interior.
At 48″ long x 20″ wide x 16″ tall, reSurface is about the size of a standard coffee table – which might be the only average thing about it.

    Is there a location where I can purchase the entire coffee table?

  7. Julie - May 10, 2012

    I would like to purchase the slats that you used for the table to use in my vanity in our bathroom, how can I buy them. They are just gorgeous!
    Thank you,

    How can I get a metal frame built? I’m looking for a “table” about counter height, but not very deep and maybe 3′ wide – I would love to be able to add my own wood center.

      I’m a custom metal fabricator, and can build pretty much anything metal. Send me a sketch, and info, and I can give you a quote.
      Thank you,
