We aren't typically ones to geek out on furniture, but this warrants an exception to the rule. Phillips Collection has worked up a coffee table perfect for any BMW fan. From the side, the piece simply looks to be three tilted boxes, but view the table from above and it becomes clear that it's actually a physical manifestation of the BMW M logo. Made from cold-pressed steel and powder coated in the exact hues used by the BMW go-fast division, the table is sure to last for years and years. If you want one as badly as we do, you'll have to contact Phillips Collection for more information.

Designer Jason Phillips is based in Greensboro, North Carolina and has crafted a number of innovative tables and chairs. You can check out his full portfolio by heading over to his Behance page.

      This is cool as hell but I don't get the point of making them tilted the way they are. It would look just the same, and be more structurally stable, even if it wasn't tilted.

          Motion it's a style. you not always look at it from above. It would't be special if it was just straight. M cars are special and M tables should be special as well.

        I'd be paranoid that someone might sit on it, and destroy it.

        That way, I guess it looks more like the logo when viewed from the side. Sort of. It's just a gimmick though, because it only looks remotely similiar to the ///M logo when viewed from directly above anyways.

      This is amazing!! Love how many people on this post are hating on something that they a.) couldn't do and b.) probably haven't even seen a BMW in person. Without being too abstract, this piece is actually brilliant. And for the record, I think I will listen to Zach's opinion over someone who shops at Ikea and someone who wants to be known as "JUSTIN B." Thanks for showing this, Zach.

        I could definitely build this... And bmtroubleu are ugly.. This table takes the cake. The sad thing about this table is this guy has a background in industrial design with a history in furniture production and thesis all he could come up with...l zero creativity and boring. Just like BMW !!!

      I'm all for having car-related furniture but this is ugly. It reminds me of a toy box at a daycare center.

      Sorry, but contruction costs to produce this will be absurd. You CANNOT manufacture this by using wood. The entire frame of the table would need to be steel reinforced, and that is costly --- to achieve the slanted angles and still be structurally sound. My brother who is in ID made a table similar but with even more extreme angles, in many other directions, and the end result was a one-off make, special edition, $25,000 table due to the materials and process required to construct the damn thing.

        The thing is, they could've made it completely upright while still having a rhombus shape and it would look no different when viewed from above than it does now. It would still be an M logo. Making it tilted was unnecessary.

          @Lemon: No, it wasn't necessary at all. The table is meant to look like the M logo when viewed from the top. Whether the support legs were tilted or not would've made no difference how it looks like from the top. All it did was make the table significantly structurally weaker. 4 people who voted me down obviously have no clue what I'm saying.

      IKEA has shelving units that look just like this, and are about the same size, for somthing like $11.99 each for the big ones and $9.99 for the small one. The colors are nothing unique; you can get rattle cans from Krylon. Anyone could duplicate this for less than 50 bucks. Assuming you don't get sick of looking at it. Or of people telling you to get a life...

      I prefer these furniture pieces. If they're anything like the Mustangs that they are sourced from, they not only look cooler, but they probably cost about half. http://www.stangtv.com/news/furniture-for-gearheads/
