Diagonal Table by Chris Chen

Home > Winners > #121258


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Diagonal

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
The concept of table “Diagonal 45” is initiated from the geometric term which is one line segment joins two nonconsecutive vertices. The connection between each vertex not only creates a tension but also draw a frame to form an area. The idea is to use the simplest geometry to establish a steady and sleek structure of a table.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Diagonal logic was extended to every element and compositional logic of the desk, not only reveals on the layout of walnut veneer of the tabletop, but also applies to structural skeleton that transmits force from the top to stand. Furthermore, the positions of two stands are also aligned to the diagonal guide line of the desktop.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Void and Solid interaction: If you stand at the perfect diagonal angle from different side of table, you will be given a total different impression of the desk. One is light as modern steel frame glass building, but from the other angle, the desk will be more like solid concrete building. And of course the view and impression will become various when you walk along the table. The balance between dynamic and static, void and solid are swinging between the diagonal lines.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project was made in Oct 2017

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The bevel detail of tabletop and the technique to distant stand and tabletop are both meant to lighten upper part of the desk and create a floating illusion.

CHALLENGE:
The main structural skeleton was embedded within the tabletop and transmits the force thru three mediated columns to the stand. The skeleton was placed at the center line of the desk and holds up two cross diagonal logic. Then connects to two 90 degree table stands.
