With the ‘Edge Table’ we wanted to create a design-infused dining experience where a transparent table top is supported by a light weight golden folded metal sheet.
The idea was to use 2-dimensional sheets of metal and make them into a 3-dimensional object that is functional, structural and visually lightweight.Sheets of metal are cut, folded and welded to create a single entity that comprises of the table top as well as its legs. The design of the table maintains seamlessness in formal expression and materiality across its different components creating a feeling of oneness.
The Edge Table also commands a shift from the conventional notion of a dining table supported on 4 legs. The table is designed with 2 legs kept on a wooden base. This multi-faceted and triangulated surfaceswasoptimised by reducing the unwanted weight as chunks of non-structural metal was removed from its surfaces making the table more transparent, delicate and stylish.
