Branching Table by gradient matter

gradient matter is a small design and ideas-driven practice based in San Francisco, California and led by Andrei Hakhovich. One of their great designs is a Branching Table. “While I has developing the Branching table I thought about the relationships of one person to another as they will sit across each other, tension, attraction, repulsion, connection. I wanted to reveal it all, I had a desire to map the unseen. Part of table geometry was inspired by growing forces in trees and traditional Japanese joinery. Made from local wal­nut and plyboo veneer with plexiglass inserts. Two materials were joined with wood lap joints without use of hardware.” If you like this table – you can always buy it here.
