Zesch interlocking coasters
These coasters interlock in a hexagonal grid, using a proprietary interlocking shape. They can be used individually, or joined together to serve as trivets for larger objects – or to create intriguing works of art…


Zesch coasters are lasercut from bamboo sheet and were designed with a generative modeling software called Grasshopper.

 …thanks to a clever mathematical design, the coasters can be combined to form larger trivets… which is why we love designer Michiel Cornelissen’s laser-cut Zesch coasters


Digital manufacturing maven Michiel Cornelissen is at it again.


This clever laser-cut pattern from bamboo sheets allows clusters of them to come together and form larger trivets of various shapes and sizes
