It's a bit smaller than I thought. It is not really practical BUT it is a brilliant piece of design the way the pieces fit together -- and can be rearranged. Quality is very good. The designer Zaha Hadid does not do many affordable items -- and this is very cool. I think of it as a sculpture. Search for Zaha and you'll be an instant fan of her work. ...and yes, you could use it if you wanted.
