Designer Derek Pearce is creating extraordinary pieces of furniture that can be described with many attributes but certainly, can not be called ordinary or dull. In his creative work, he uses forms of animals like hippos or dolphins to make tables and tabletop glass is smartly used to create an illusion of water. So when you buy Derek Pearce hippo table for example it’s like you have a hippo coming out of water right in your living room. The tables are unique and you can see the variants in the gallery below and how really awesome they all look.
Derek happens to be a very versatile person and probably his creativity is coming from that. His broad experience includes jobs such as a performer, stage carpenter, musical director, and teacher. Pearce’s been building his Water Tables since 1997, and they’ve since been exhibited and sold throughout America, Europe, and Japan.
The Water Tables are available for purchase and you can purchase one for yourself on the Water Tables website.
