Exhibit Name: Perspex & Plywood tables

Design Intent: To design a functional piece of furniture that is conscious of its production processes and material usage without detracting from a beautiful form. The low table employs a simple use of material and form to create a complicated arrangement of elements... clean straight lines that run the perimeter and outline the body, flat planes that begin together, separate swooping down and around the footing then flowing up and meeting again at the top surface.

Description: The coffee table is formed from rectangular sheets of potentially any kind of material that is flat, and rigid after it has been shaped, such as plywood, sheet metal and perspex. The sheets are cut to size in such a fashion that there is a minimal wastage of material and reduced production processes.

Production: For the timber and perspex versions, flat sheets of either plantation grown hoop pine or clear perspex are CNC routed and bent over a mould to form its shape. Potentially medium to high volumes can be produced.

Market: High-end design that is aimed towards both local and overseas markets for domestic and commercial environments.

You should know: I have recently completed a degree in Industrial design and believe in beauty in function and that design can improve our quality of living. My work intends to combine visual and practical elements that are beautiful and modern while not limiting use.
