Timbiriche Work Table by Cecilia Alcocer & Diego Lizama

Home > Winners > #53379


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Timbiriche

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Work Table

INSPIRATION:
Human needs are in constant change as the essential characteristic of life. A furniture piece shouldn't only respond to its basic function, but to become a living stage. It's necessary to redefine the concept of furniture from where it only changes if relocated, to a new one on which it's transformed according to its current use. This design organizes and ensures an ever changing space using the essence of the mexican game Timbiriche, whose word's origin is about going back to order from chaos.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A highly aesthetic and functional piece, an inventive space that offers infinite possibilities to organize the workspace through an adaptable surface. Its board is made up of quadrangular wood pieces, which, with a system of rails on its lateral sides, allows them to slide, to be removed or placed on the horizontal plane, creating transparent spaces, where the objects seem to float safely according to custom measurements. It becomes versatile since it can be customized to each user's needs.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The surface consists of a maximum of 197 sliding pieces in 200 spaces which are arranged in order to create the desirable stage for its use. The sizing of these wood pieces responds to the size of a hand and the everyday objects on a work table, such as a glass, a pen, etc. All the materials and finishes allow a comfortable and harmonious interaction between the object and the user, since the configuration and reconfiguration of the board becomes easy and fast in order to meet the user's needs.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started at the beginning of 2016, from first ideas until obtaining the design and began its manufacture on April of the same year. The whole process, since the first prototypes, choice of materials and finishes, until the final model, was all carried out in Merida, Mexico; in which multiple artisans took part of, ending it on early August in order to be exhibited at the 2016 International Furniture Expo in Guadalajara, Mexico, obtaining the 1st place in the Dimueble contest.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The board consists of high quality handmade cedar wood pieces, which rest on a glass pane contained in a metal frame that shapes the table structure, whose resistance achieves a light appearance. Its four V-shaped Machiche hardwood supports, when embedded in the metal frame, discard the use of horizontal reinforcements. The delicate and artesanal woodwork of distinctive Yucatan's species and the rough and industrial of metal create a sensory explotion caused by textures, appearances and smells.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 1900mm x Depth 850 mm x Height 750 mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
By realizing how the furniture, which contemporary mankind needs, should be; is that a table is chosen as the subject of enquiry and so is the interaction of man within his working environment. Resulting that he requires organizing, transforming and personalizing it. The idea of creating a table whose board is dynamic, conformed by pieces whose design is defined by the ergonometry of the participating objects in the workspace emerges. The goal is to give the table the quality of a living space.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge begins with trying to reinterpret, from an architectural point of view, the conception and function of a furniture's piece. Since it wasn't enough that this was only known for its aesthetic quality; it was necessary to create a comprehensive design and to recognize the user as a being who looks forward to constantly reinvent the space that inhabits, which doesn't respond to a static world, and at the same time, responding to the plastic needs of a table.
