A Crashed Ferrari Coffee Table by Molinelli Charly

As Molinelli Charly points out, relatively few individuals ever get to drive a Ferrari, even once. The Portland-based multidisciplinary creator and graphic designer says "That’s a fact. A worse fact is that some of the Ferraris on the market today are being crashed and destroyed. That’s hard to imagine for us normal people, but it seems that the ex-owners aren’t as impressed as we are."

He decided to right this travesty and turned the wrecked body into an attainable and functional object, laying the parts to rest within a coffee table crypt—"Like a dead hero placed into a coffin." The resulting object is a one-of-kind table that combines polish and the rugged industrial feel that comes naturally to twisted metal and rust.
