Jeff Skierka’s Mixtape coffee table is the perfect furniture for kids of the 80s

Ah, to grow up in the 80s. Those heady days when music wasn’t streamed through the internet, but instead meticulously recorded from the radio onto analogue cassette tapes. If only there was a way to capture the time in a piece of furniture…

Woodworking designer Jeff Skierka has perfectly captured the essence of bootleg cassette tapes with his Mixtape coffee table, a 12:1 scale replica of an old cassette tape made from reclaimed maple, walnut and lucite, with a plexi top. It measures 1.2 metres across and took five years to create the first prototype.

Presently only a one-of -a-kind prototype, Skierka claims on his website that future versions of the table will be CNC machined out of high grade plywood, with a glass top to keep everything stable.

But the best part of the design is that just like a real tape, the Mixtape table is reversible, letting you showcase both Side A and Side B. Being made of wood, it’s also going to be a lot stronger than traditional cassette tapes.

The only downside about the whole design is that you can’t actually buy them. Yet.
