tables are constructed by laminating plywood strips that have been
turned on edge. These components have been computer-cut following
stringent patterns designed to systematically fit together, thus
maximising the use of each standard four by eight foot sheet of
plywood by eliminating offcuts and waste. This is a conceptually
motivated design approach that minimises subjective decision-making.
The cutting and re-orienting of the plywood strips reveals the layered
structure concealed within the sheet, forming a reconstructed surface
of exposed edges. The finished tables are lighter than the original
sheets of material. This difference in weightliterally sawdustis
conceptually returned to each table as the numerical designation
in the title.
All tables are meticulously constructed, reinforced with internal
steel rods, and finished with multiple coats of clear lacquer that
form precision-smooth surfaces of the highest possible standard.
