Drops Coffee Table by Jeffrey A Day

Home > Winners > #42495


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Drops

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee Table

INSPIRATION:
Watching rain drops disrupting the glass like appearance of a pond in rainy Seattle was my inspiration. Coupling that event with a commonly used material fits nicely into my design philosophy of creating a visual dialogue. As the light shifts on Drops Table, a shadow change gives the person another sentence in the conversation.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Drops Coffee Table is solid wood construction. The use of a CNC router made this design possible for production with the uniquely sculpted support frames and top surface. Suspended motion is captured within the rectangular frame that brings balance to the piece visually; conversely, the rain drops on the top surface expands out of the envelope to draw attention to the detail and eludes to the randomness of raindrops.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Coffee Table

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
May 2015 in Seattle WA and finished in July 2015 in Seattle WA

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
32mm wood was used for the support structure and 38mm wood was used for the top surface. CNC routing was used to realize the design, as the project progressed different methods were used for cutting as it related assembly and production. Routing 4 pre-constructed frames were explored initially which evolved into 17 individual pieces to make a complete unit.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 1066mm x Depth 635mm x Height 380mm

Day Studios, Jeff Day, Furniture, Drops Table, Seattle, Contemporary,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research for Drops was mainly conducted to create the base of the table, as was trial and error. I explored lap joints, dowels, butt joints, etc... Finally arriving on the use of dowels to give strength.

CHALLENGE:
The table base gave Jeff the most challenge to overcome. He wanted to capture suspended motion as if the table was being pulled apart like taffy. IN order to accomplish this he used variable radius's throughout the rails and stiles to make this a reality.
