CruciFauX Sectional dining table by Helen Brasinika

Home > Winners > #33963


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
CruciFauX

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sectional dining table

INSPIRATION:
Main inspiration originates from the three dimensional shape or configuration of a molecule and its important characteristics. This shape is dependent on the preferred spatial orientation of covalent bonds to atoms having two or more bonding partners. The bonding configurations of carbon which form three categories, gave the design concept for the basic wooden elements.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Contrary to conventional dining tables, its modularity expands to its top, the supporting elements, metallic interlocking cross bars and mounting member that provides an integrally formed screw shank. The wooden elements of the table are an abstractive metaphor of the carbon bonding configurations: Linear, Trigonal and Tetrahedral. The leg supporting each top is linear. The basic table configuration forms a triangle. The wooden top part forms a tetrahedral abstraction, while all three bear hollow portions of a screw shank passing through.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This table has a dynamic ability to change configurations depending on the room scale and user needs. It takes different shapes that start from assembling the three basic top elements to triagonal, rectangular, X or asteroid endless shapes.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
January 2014 until March 2014

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A black wooden wedge piercing the top, attaches it to the leg holding both decorative and functional values. The cross shaped hollow on the top of the wedge, allows access to the screw shank which passes through a hole in a resilient gripping member and engages a solid threaded portion on the table leg. The cross hollow leaves also a niche that can be used as a reso or candle holder, thus contributing to a candle lit mood ambience in the dining area. The top consists of an MDF layer on which wood veneer 5mm thick is pressed, sandpapered in order to accentuate the wood grains and then waxed to add color and water protection. Natural wood is also lathed to give the leg its bottle shape and then treated with polyester lacquer RAL 1004 to add extra glossiness color vibrancy. Lathes, boring and milling machine tools similar to the production of traditional and antique furniture have been used.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions follow table configuration.

TAGS:
Table, dining, interaction, adjustable, configuration, sectional, screw shank, modular, organic, chemistry

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Bibliographic research was conducted in advanced means of attaching table legs. The main objective was for the data collection to provide insights in securing the table rigidly and immovable without the use of tools. Many methods come with an inherent flaw that the legs loosen over a certain period of time, while our design should provide the choice of dismounting, moving and changing configuration easily and repeatedly. The employed method provides ease in assembling while not distracting from decorative and aesthetic appearance.

CHALLENGE:
The advantages of molecularity and modular assembling. Combining lathing, milling and drilling machine tools of traditional cabinetry making with advantages of contemporary research and patents in mounting and assembling without compromising the handcrafted aesthetics.
