Xiral Watertower

Bring a French countryside landmark into your living room

As part of this year's Maison et Objet design tradeshow during Paris Design Week, the exhibition "Now: Le Off!" served to showcase young, up-and-coming designers. We were drawn to the smartly conceived multipurpose pieces throughout the show. One particularly French item we spotted were Xiral's Watertower Tables.

Made from heavy-duty concrete—the designer's preferred material—the accent tables are meant to look like the traditional gray water towers scattered throughout the French countryside. Hidden within each table is a storage space beneath the wooden cover.

The Watertowers are still in the prototype stage, but for more information visit Xiral's website.
