    The present prototype 'Mini Event Horizon' table and another one in a variant black and white color scheme are the only two extant tables of this model. After executing the prototypes, Capppellini never actually put the design into production. Marc Newson conceived the 'Mini Event Horizon' as a related piece to the 'Event Horizon' table from 1992.
