With a background in fine arts and a degree in sculpture, Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba is a master of making imaginative forms come to life. Whether it's an end table wearing a pair of roller skates or an armchair enveloped with twigs, the artist relies on natural materials to fuel his functional pieces of art. Each striking piece examines the often one-sided relationship between man and nature - where man takes away, but rarely gives back - and imagines nature reclaiming what belongs to it. In this piece, Malerba repurposed a packing crate into a unique side table that opens for storage, so an afghan or bottle of wine is always within reach.
