Coffee Table

The design of this coffee table was inspired by a precedent. The precedent that I studied was the Moorman Pressed chair, the assignment involved designing an autonomous piece of furniture derived by the basic principal that was used to design the precedent. The pressed chair was designed with the intent of being cut out of a single material without using any joinery, while producing no waste. I reinterpreted this idea to design a coffee table that had the illusion of being created using a single sheet of plywood.
