With this design, the employees will raise their motivation as well as performance, creating competition, which will lead to acquirement of competent human resources.
This design was achieved while we had the client understand that design power greatly contributes to work environment where high level performance can be continued at all times.
Since the table paint must be finished in one and cannot be redone, many samples were made in advance to fix the color and image.
Paint was casted onto the pretreated wooden table by using the brush and spatula before it hardens, using contrast of air strength of the compressor and blowing down another color to control the pattern.
After the above process, the world’s only one table like water surface was completed.
