Sketchy Table by Xenofon Hector Grigorelis

Home > Winners > #35525


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sketchy

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table

INSPIRATION:
This table is something that I had in mind for several years. The first thought of it started during my studies as an interior designer. It reminds me the sketch table we used then & also the 70's decade, which I love the most, as I have the best memories as a child.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The primary operation is using it as a dinning table & secondly as a sketch board. At first it looks simple & this simplicity is the reason that makes it special in a curious way. But what makes it unique, is the way it opens & stands, as a ''cavalletto'' for sketching & drawing. The light curves on the wooden structure & also on the edges of the top surface refer us in the decade of 70's. Special detail in the surface is the combination of the two different materials.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This table has plenty of uses. It can be used as a dinning table, a convention table, meeting table & also thanks to the lift mechanism as a sketch board or presentation board.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project is in a concept stage & has not been prototyped or constructed. The concept work started in May of 2014 & ended in end of June 2014.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The table was digitally designed using cad & 3d modeling software. The top was made in CNC in curved way. The structure of the legs are all wooden & connected together with traditional joining techniques. The mechanism is with tracks in order to receive the gradient that you prefer for sketching.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The top surface dimension is 2500 X 900mm curved in the edges & has thickness 24mm in two different materials wood & mdf panel in glossy lacquered. The legs & the structure are walnut wood with thickness 62 X 38mm.The finally height of the table is 770mm.

TAGS:
Table, Sketch table, Dinning table, Board, Draw, Curve, Wood, Furniture, Scandinavian, Contemporary.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This research project is focused on how to connect the base of the table & on which type of wood that will be used for construction in order to achieve the stabilization of the table. Particular emphasis was given in the tilt mechanism that remind us of ''cavalletto'' of renaissance & in the combination of colors.

CHALLENGE:
The fist challenge was how to make this long dinning table steady because the legs are inclined & secondly the way to make it gradient in order to be used as a sketch table.
