TABLE DISTORTIONS
 

This table design proposes six tables which become one. Each individual table has a unique shape, which fits snuggly together with the others, to form an oversized communal table eighteen feet long by six feet wide, which can seat 24 chairs or can be separated in space as individual tables. Each table appears to push on the others inflecting the shape of each neighboring table as if they are soft and malleable. An open webbing pattern is cut through the top, based on the location of the non-uniform structural frame below.

The individual table shapes are drawn with a consistent bending radius suggesting the bentwood manufacturing forms of Thonet’s original manufacturing process, which steamed wood to soften it for bending around heavy iron molds. Each table appears to push on the others inflecting the shape of each neighboring table as if they are soft and malleable.
