Stacking Up

Published by Guarino Furniture Designs on

The original orientation of Stacking Up was to be vertical however while refining the shape and sanding I saw that laying the table on its side had the potential of being more dynamic. The addition of glass and the heavy steel allowed the form to be laid on its side.

After rescuing and then air-drying Northern Catalpa, I decided to bleach the wood to highlight the sculptural aspect of the design. The design is all about the sculpture elements of the table, the negative space is just as important as the positive space.
