The echo table pushes the material limits of metal and wood to imagine an intangible reality.
In wood, the grain tells its history and by using a technique of exposing the hardwood (season of winter) and embedded metal into the lines of the softwood (season of summer), each growth creates an elusive boundary between the two materials.
The objectivity is further enhanced by removing the sense of substantial weight and density of the materials.
Beauty and inspiration are found all around us. The table legs reference the shape generated by the spilling of water.
The variation of the table top in an organic circle like a stone formed by the sea current.
It enacts the activity and motion which would happen around a table.
Alluding to the subtle shades of a sunrise, the colour of three tables are created in three metal: aluminium, copper, and brass.
