The design for this table incorporates digitally formed bent stainless steel rods welded together to form delicate legs to this solid surface tabletop. The top is routed to receive the steel legs both in a pocket on the underside as well as nested into the sides of each corner. the leg gains strength and stability from the weight of the table as the forces are balanced between the corner and the bracket set into the tables bottom.

The underside of the table is also routed to provide an unexpected texture. The pattern is generated by an offset tool path radiating outward from each point of support. The intersections of the grooves produces a pattern that oscillates between recognizability and intricate detail that disguises the underlying simplicity of its order.

David Adjaye's Washington Skin Chair for Knoll are featured with the table.
