Going with the Grain

As plywood continues to be used in flat and rigid forms, our project attempts to create curvature with such material. Our concept is to create a usable surface that is not restricted by the material's characteristics and also have it function as an everyday furniture. Our coffee table is created by wrapping a table top around with a curved surface, which can be used as a shelf. The end result is a free form shelf with a functional table top that can be used in living rooms or coffee shops everywhere.
