“Celebration, pride, re – invent” are the three big words that drives the concept of the design. I would like to reflect the three big words through my design.
The table is made of a 18mm laminate sheet and cut to shape with edges painted in colour. This table is unlike the ordinary table sitting on legs, it is floating. The table is hanged from the ceiling by one 6mm rigid rod each side. The rods are fixed through to the threaded plates below the table. The table is also gathered by the same family ( swing chairs ) which are made from the off – cut of Laminate sheets and gathered from different materials and colours . The shape of the table is limited to rectangular, it can be round or square, etc. Same as seat.
In return to the three big words,
Celebration = Gathering & Happiness (Mixing all Formica products, colours with swinging ability to give joy to the occupier)
Pride = Material honesty. ( using Formica material only, minimise all non – Formica materials where are not necessary)
Re – Invent = Innovative (quick installation, low budget, low tech, low waste and mass production for the future, flexibility of shape and size)
For an artist, art is everywhere, one of the greatest creations was the Origami-Bird. Transforming the organic nature of the bird, & expressing its natural forms into a more physical element. How can my table design stay true to its organic origin? The Origami-Crane gives me the inspiration to create a free simple form, expressed in a more physical beauty.
This table made from 6 pieces triangles, can be for product display, a bar leaner or lobby table. Because the free form it creates more individual spaces depending on the scale of the table.
The vertex table celebrates the raw edges of Formica. The exposed vertices define the form in contrast to the colourful, gloss clad facets.
Now you se it now you don’t. A table for the smallest of flats. Need a bed and wan’t a table.

The design is a deconstructed approach which develops a system to create the illusion of carving through layering. The design is based on the form of a shell, which was modelled and then analysed to explore the curves. The layers are Formica High Pressure Laminate Snowdrift which are spaced to create a sculptural coffee table. The spacers incorporate an extra dimension to engage with the play of shadows.
