Finding inspiration in nature's flora designer David Rasmussen creates some of the most unique tables you have ever seen, turning his work into stand-alone art pieces. For some of our favorite David Rasmussen coffee tables continue after the jump:

From the Designer:

Artichoke Table. The Artichoke table was designed to represent an organic form that has been split to reveal its core, in this case the cross section of an artichoke.  The body of the table is made from shop-molded plywood faced with exceptional zebra wood veneer and coopered to form the elliptical shell.  Cocobolo legs are mortised into the shell to make this table heirloom quality.  Artist Scott Harris skillfully executed the acrylic painting on the top of the table.  The painting has been sanded flat and treated to act as a durable tabletop.

Lego Table. Lego is the brainchild of designers David Rasmussen and Amee Hinkely.  Like the polished core revealed when a geode is cracked open, Lego is a geometrically-shaped table that has been split open, in concept, to reveal it’s multicolored core.  The top is an acrylic painting that has been sanded and sealed for durability.  Lego’s legs are re-used from school chairs.

Cabbage Table. The core of the Cabbage Table was inspired by the cross section of a cabbage.  The body of the table is made from shop-molded plywood faced with exceptional makore veneer and coopered to form the elliptical shell.  Ebony legs are mortised into the shell to make this table heirloom quality.  Artist Scott Harris skillfully executed the acrylic painting on the top of the table.  The painting has been sanded flat and treated to act as a durable tabletop.
