The Barberry Coffee Table by Deniz Aktay via Behance is this designer’s own take on the current Barbie trend. This coffee table has a folded metal tabletop appearance that rises up like a spiral staircase.

The step-up metal sheet is separated into four equal parts, each offering another level surface.

A chrome-plated support tube is the only other element. This style of design brings to mind cantilever chairs.

“I wanted to give the metal sheet a very bright finish so I decided to use pink both to have a very fresh colour and to follow the current Barbie trend,” the Stuttgart, Germany-based designer said.
