Domo Arigato, Mr. Trivet

Robot servants always seem like such a good idea...until they rise up and turn against us!

Worth the risk, this hardy team of handy bots will bring a wonderfully retro feel to your home, and can either be pieced together to serve as a trivet or taken apart and used as coasters.

Set of six robots. Heat-resistant. Made in New Zealand of cherry and walnut acacia wood. Designed by Richard and Vicki Kung for the Museum of Robots.

Made in

Designers Vicki and Richard Kung are inspired by all things robotic and sci-fi. This focus on sleek, smooth lines and giving their pieces a futuristic feel lead to the metallic, interchangeable pieces comprising the Modular Candlestick Set and the out-of-this-word qualities in many of their designs.

The worlds of si-fi and design collide in Museum of Robots, the couple's homage to metallic mechanisms, where a love of robots, technology and product design combine in functional products for the home.

It's no surprise the duo is designing pieces fit for the future. Richard has been collecting robots for 25 years and Vicki is a lifelong sci-fi fan who got her first robot at age 6.

According to Richard and Vicki, "All our products are inspired by robots, which to us are the essence of modern and nostalgic, futuristic and retro, technical and playful, functional and entertaining, and perfectly represent our vision."

Museum of Robots is located in the suitably sci-fi, online world of Second Life. The Museum hosts digital exhibits dedicated to the appreciation of robots, whether historical, cinematic or literary.

    Ordered a load of stuff at once for Christmas, and this was the pick of the bunch. Every guest for the first dinner will now be getting one the next time they are in need of a present.
