Wave Table

Over the fall semester of my senior year, I took an advanced form making studio course titled “Angles, Curves, and complex forms.” In this studio course I showed how material plays an important role in the manufacturing and rhythm of an object. From the beginning of this studio, I began looking at branches as a source of wood as opposed to the traditional trunk of a tree. Looking at the branches, I noticed how they are much less stable but provided a uniquely beautiful quality of movement into a stationary object.

Through continued experimentation, I ended up designing and building a coffee table made out of laminated white oak in a “wave” pattern to mimic the motion of the wood itself. The waves also impact the user to think more deeply and notice the table when they are interacting with it.
