This Concrete Table Will Self-Destruct, Just Very Slowly

Illustration for article titled This Concrete Table Will Self-Destruct, Just Very Slowly

Each time someone buys one of these limited-edition concrete coffee tables, the designers subtract a pre-planned chunk from the next one they'll sell. So, it's self-destruction in an expensive, arty, musical-chairs-meets-LEGO kind of way rather than a Mission Impossible explosion. "This Table Will Self Destruct" is intriguing, though: does its shrinkage represent less value for money each time, or do you get increased "art" as each chunk gets nibbled away? Only 23 chunks have been zapped so far, so you can buy a nearly complete one today or wait for it to get holier—both options will cost you $1700 for two. [Product at Studio1am via Nerd Approved]

Wait... People are willing to pay for the chance of getting a less than functional table? I mean obviously right now you could get one and it would be fine. But who would buy this down the road w/ the chance of getting half of a table. How is that even art. You are paying for holes. They should at least get incrementally cheaper. Although i personally think there should be a certain limit as to how much table they will remove. After that that can just re start the cycle. What about the person that just gets one of those little blocks. I would be ashamed to send that to someone under the guise of "art" I bet they will be really proud of their 1700 dollar block of concrete. Gonna show that off to ALL of their friends.
