This Cosmos coffee table was designed by Sven Engström and Gunnar Myrstrand for the Swedish Tingströms manufacture during the 1960s. It is made of teak wood, which is extremely resistant to external factors and owes its longevity mainly to a specific composition, rich in oily substances and silicic acid. The table has a simple form characteristic for design idea of the Mid-Century Modern era.
