Grand Teton Table
Dimensions: L: 48” W: 24” H: 18”
The first coffee tables were made in Britain during the Victorian era. This table, recently designed for a project in Wilson, WY, was inspired by the visual drama of the Grand Tetons. The base, made from two-inch black walnut slabs, explores CNC milling and lamination and is the final design iteration of a series of CNC experimentations exploring milling techniques, formal limitations, and material performance.
The family of wooden forms suggests an act of social gathering—the very function of a coffee table. The table plays with a number of contrasting qualities in its materials, composition and form: opaque and transparent; organic and cartesian; carved and cast; thin and thick; curved and straight.
