About as useful as a concrete on

From the designers...

'The Beat Bloom PROPELLER is a go-anywhere coffee table and seating with storage on wheels by Beat Glaesser and Studio IVANKA. A new creation for the different functions of seating, coffee table and storage to be skillfully combined in one piece of furniture, in a daring design. Material as well as form and structure confer a contemporary look. This piece has been given a dynamic shape with the distinct feeling of constant motion. It’s sleek and sinuous sculptural body contrasts marvelously with its surroundings. Perfectly suited for both indoor and outdoor usage due to its extremely durable fiber reinforced high performance cast concrete material. Its surface shows its best in nature and ages to its advantage.

It lends itself not only for domestic use but also for public purposes and it can be a highlight of commercial places and working environments. The flock of elements, like a group of three objects can form an ideal space unit of ‘furniture ensemble’ vitalizing the community activities of urban dwellers. It’s a product to improve people being together with other people. It drives and inspires users in use.'

Might be more reliable in an ash cloud perhaps??
