Akke Functional Art’s Axel Yberg is at his finest again, moving from the realm of table-tennis to music with his latest creation: “Bo Biddley.” After donating the rights to a custom piece of furniture to the highest bidder at a charity auction, Yberg received a request to make a coffee table. Using guitar strings to create this tensegrity table (think the same principles that hold up a suspension bridge), Yberg put together an incredible mash-up of wood and glass that takes it’s name from legendary blues guitarist Bo Diddley. The stings are completely functional as well – playing a trio of different pitches when plucked. After throwing in a couple of mother-of-pearl guitar picks, Yberg had successfully created another awe-inspiring piece of functional art.
