palette coaters / labyrinth, spain

piled with heavy boxes and left out in all kinds of weather: life is all work and no play for industrial wooden pallets. 

luckily for them, spain based design duo labyrinth (doron andre hadar from israel and carmen dullnig from austria) has scaled down the standard euro pallet to one tenth of its size, creating these stackable palette coasters that are exact miniatures of the industrial models, right down to their quality stamps.

you give them a fun place to stay, and in return, the durable coasters will do all the heavy lifting to keep your drinks off the table.  if only work were always this much fun!  (anita db, 2011)
