4 Original Tables: Desks and Coffee Tables
Bear table by Daniel Lewis Garcia
Bear table made of plywood
American designer Daniel Lewis Garcia designed a table in the form of a bear, made of multiple layers of plywood. Studying the use of plywood in furniture production, Garcia noted that manufactures are trying to hide and conceal splices of plywood sheets. He, however, decided to use the joints and the pattern that they create as a decorative stroke.
According to the designer, it allows not only to emphasize the streamlined shape of the object, but also to strengthen its structure. Thus, Bear table consists of a plurality of layers of veneer glued together firmly with each other.
The table has a simple but easily recognizable shape resembling a bear. It can be used as a coffee table, dresser or console in the nursery.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art Ying Cheng created a collection of furniture, the design of which is based on a modular grid.
Modular grid is a system developed by Josef Müller-Brockmann and Wim Crouwel whose purpose is to make the layout of printing materials more convenient and logical. Cheng decided to apply this method in the field of product design and has designed a modular table Grid System, which is a three-dimensional version of the grid.
The table does not have a regular countertop. It is replaced by a set of mesh containers in three sizes – A3, A4, A5 – which the owner of the table is free to set in a convenient manner.
In addition to modules for storage the system involves wooden boards that can be used as countertops, installing them in the right place, bright aluminum shelves and accessories of cement.
Grid System can be adapted to a variety of needs: keeping things, breakfast, computer work, reading, etc.
