This table is made of either Pine or Mahogany wood, all coming from sustainably harvested forests. Aside from this, the “wooden rods” that are used as “string” in this table is made from recycled or unwanted wooden parts of legs and arms of chairs. Coming from a manufacturing firm with strict Quality Control, we have quite a few of these waste parts. I recycled them by processing it through a dowelling machine. It gives it a whole new look and the new texture adds even more character to the piece of wood and the table as a whole.
Lines are stubborn things to pin down, so you string them up. And while they insist on following a ‘linear’ track, it’s also very easy to fool them into bending a bit here and there in a hegemonic sort of oscillation. They tend to appreciate that; they’re sick of being shortcuts all the time, what with the whole “the fastest route to get from A to B” theory applied to almost everything that needs a line or two. They’ll move only when you coax them, to form grids, blueprints, objects, the world.
