Errazuriz came up with the idea for Coke Slab while watching his friends do lines of cocaine at a New York house party. With four linear slots embedded in the steel, the Coke Slab allows the “user” to create four perfect cocaine lines by simply swiping the drug over the slots. Check out Errazuriz’s other works: The Duck Lamp, and Body of Work-a full-frontal coffee table designed in collaboration with Ross Bleckner.
