Table with galss:
Dining table made of pine beams, that were considered as waste, and left outside. The sunlight gave it a hard surface, that it won’t need any further treatments. The beams are joined together with iron treads. This rough, and simple structure is in contrast with the huge glass surface of the table.
At the beginning of the design process by this bookshelf, the main idea was to keep it as simple as we can. But this simplicity appears not in the form, but rather in the construction of the furniture. It was designed to avoid complicated connections, in order to preserve the simplicity of building.
The bookshelf consists of two kinds of elements, that can be put together without the need of fixing or extra linking elements. The parts rest on each other by the force of gravity. In conclusion, it can be easily varied, disassembled, and put together again.
The shelf contains two kinds of spaces, in the middle, one is only for the books, and on the two sides, two narrow zones are formed, where the objects of daily life can be placed.
The shelf is made of two materials, large, light colored pinewood planks, that provides the form, and small oak rods for sustainment. A slight contrast remains between the two materials in the form, as well as in the color.
The design of this stool for guests is the reinterpretation of the question of storing. While stored, it appears as an object hung on the wall, and loses every connection with its original function.
The structure of the stool is as simple as possible, it lacks complicated junctions, aiming to emphasize the material itself. It consist of three oak planks and an iron console on the wall.
