Michael Bihain trained as butcher and then as a carpenter before switching to interior design and furniture design. He currently teaches furniture conception at the St Luc Institute while also working with companies and distribution firms developing furniture, jewels and accessories. One of Bihain’s new designs is the iris table. He has used laser cutting to transform a single sheet of steel into a coffee table that resembles an iris. Unlike most tables the iris is stackable. I imagine stacking would come in handy along the distribution line and in a cafe or restaurant setting if they owned a few of them but probably not a necessary feature for home use. I don’t know of anyone who would need a whole stack of coffee tables in their house (although it does look quite cool). The tables come in black or white lacquered steel.
