Levels_CT Coffee Table by Jeffrey Day

Home > Winners > #55948


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Levels_CT

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Coffee Table

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for Levels _CT is two-fold; to add interest to a living environment while using simple shapes as a vehicle, and two, to accommodate different heights of surrounding furniture. I also wanted to add visual appeal by overlapping sections of the table to accentuate height differences and allow so shadowing to happen naturally.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Levels concept meets the needs of how people use tables, some like it high, some like it low. Overlapping simple shapes make up the stepped planes while adding a bit more usable surface area that also creates shadows for visual interest. Bending tubes form the central support column that peel off to provide the support for the surfaces.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Levels Coffee table has two interesting features; one, it has dual height to accommodate a personal preference as it faces your sitting area, and two it has a center handle to grasp to spin, move, or adjust easily.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Levels started in May 2016 in Seattle and finished in August 2016 in Seattle.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Levels Family adds interest to the pieces by “breaking up” the surface plane into two pieces and off setting them from the floor. A secondary goal was to create a better product that was easy to manufacture and ultimately a better product for the consumer. The tubular base rises up through the center axis as an easy way to move the table around and adjust it properly to its environment. The plane itself is CNC milled from 18mm bamboo with a severe chamfer undercut that eludes to a razor thin surface.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
812mm Dia. x h430

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research for this design is routed in one of the first questions when creating a table from a concept, how high should it be? Typically the more low slung the table is the more contemporary the design is. An interesting balance is achieved by meeting two heights.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part is this project was deciding on the final form of the planes. They needed to have a dialog with each other while retaining their own identity.
