“This table didn’t originate at the drawing board, it was taken from your memory. Didn’t your grandmother have one?

But making it from inexpensive plywood adds distinction. Especially the process of turning the legs from a stack of boards produces a dramatic texture. Les Ballets C de la B commissioned a table that can easily be moved by a single person or even taken along.

Together with Serge from the dance company we came up with legs that have a wooden helical thread that screws into the tabletop, reminiscent of piano legs.

Finally we have removed a node from the wood and inserted a twig into the cavity, as if it shot there after all.”
