Coffee Table ‘Gran Torino’

The ‘Gran Torino’ coffee table’s racy red and white lines are inspired by an out of reach childhood dream icon.

Growing up I always wanted to be one step ahead; to ride my BMX beyond the bottom of the road limit without the watchful eye of my mother, to play football with the older kids on the school playground but most of all to stay up late to watch crime fighting TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch.

There is no hiding the design inspiration; the double layered table may be a static object but yet it oozes excitement, just as in the original series, where the Ford Gran Torino was being driven to the limit.
