Cages is a collection of small tables created by Mexican designer Jorge Diego Etienne. The cute small tables are made of powder-coated steel and they look like cages built for animals, only here they hold your books, magazines and other small items. According to the designer, “Cages are a set of tables that keep safe behind bars your precious books and items. These conceptual furniture objects have an intimidating aesthetic with a ludicrous function allowing easily placing and withdrawing books through its bars, or removing its top to locate bigger objects inside. Cages provoke a dialogue about which is safer, being in or outside lockup, breaking expectations for what an occasional table’s function is.”
