Is there a point where furniture becomes so functional that it’s not functional at all? If there were ever a case, it would be the Trampoline Coffee Table by Alberto Bonomi, available for sale through GreenerGrassDesign for $4,500. According to the product listing, “the premise is, why have a middle on a coffee table when the drinks are placed on the edge- might as well be a trampoline.” Here’s one answer: you might knock the drinks off.
Not to knock the idea too hard, because we always like to see furniture designers pushing the envelope, but the Trampoline Coffee Table might have gone a little too far. However, if you’ve got an insanely cautious toddler or just want a stage for some epic drunk accidents, then the Trampoline Coffee Table might make a nice addition to your living room.
