Awards: Tappo With Anti-Bacterial Filter Ecosustainable Multi-Functional Table has been granted the “Bronze A’ Design Award” in Sustainable Products, Projects and Green Design Category by the grand jury panel of the A’ Design Award & Competition which consists of internationally influential press members, established designers, leading academics and prominent entrepreneurs.
A coffee table, a lamp and a glove compartment, with mobile device charger without unsightly cables lying everywhere. In this tucked away space you can store your phone as well as all of the essential multimedia objects that are now overcrowding our lives as “the Multimedialis Man”. Their cables disappear in Tappo’s tabletop inside the four conviently placed holes. All of this in one eco-friendly item: Tappo.
It can be made up of cardboard, FSC certified wood or bamboo and the tabletop can be made of a wide range of other options such as semi-transparent and glased layers in a multitude of colours and textures. Not only is Tappo multipurposeful and dynamic, very like us, it is a “living” piece of furniture, functional and able to transmit feelings. When the light passes through the four holes and the coloured tabletop, a relaxing colourful atmosphere is created, to be tailored to your tastes, moods or even occasions.
