Zig Zag Table, 2020

Brakeformed hot rolled steel, wax
72 in x 18 in x 10 in


This table explores the brake press as the simple way to generate structure from sheet metal. The raw steel exhibits the mill-scale caused during the hot roll manufacturing process. It is lightly waxed to conintue its patina. The design is insipred by the engineering of architrecture and bridges, and the tables integral structure offers a storage solution for books and objects.
