Remember those floppy disks from the yesteryears which only allowed you to store up to 1.44MB of data on each disk? That’s not enough space for an mp3 file containing a full song, let alone a single high-res image file. It just goes to show that data storage has truly come a long way since then.
Paying tribute to storage’s humble beginnings are the creative duo behind Neulant van Exel: Axel van Exel and Marian Neulant. They took inspiration from the classic 3.5″ floppy disk to build the Floppy Table, which is a really cool coffee table constructed from welded hot-rolled steel and stainless steel. The best thing about the table is the secret compartment that’s revealed by moving the metal shutter sideways.
