Fukushima tables

These Fukushima tables are displaying the concept of nuclear power in our everyday life, while we are sitting next to them, on the sofa, watching television which may be powered by this source.
The functional side of these tables provides an exposition surface behind the glass, with minimal material: steel rod is stabilized by glass surface. These tables are an example of responsible designt. Name “Fukushima I” and “Fukushima II” are used on purpose as a contribution to nuclear power debate and responsibility
