geometric table - what shape is it??

I saw this very interesting table on urbanoutfitters.com (http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban...ore-_-11292048) and I wanted to make it on my own. Is there a name to this shape ?

Thank you!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Not hard to figure out. Start with a square top and bottom. Connect the top to the bottom with similar squares except corner to corner not edge to edge. Fill in the resulting triangles. The height will be 1.414 times the side of each square.
