The "Taut" Table Dining Table

This table is inspired by the richness and poignancy of the rituals around dining and the frustration that the structure of the typical expanding table often places in the way of these rituals. The apron of the typical table, an untimely discovery of one's knees, is made unnecessary by exploiting the structural integrity of the tabletop. Eliminating the apron not only makes the table more comfortable, it allows for the tabletop to be a more assertively expressive component of the table, accentuating the surface that every gathering has in common.

The continuing aspiration of our office is to create buildings of extraordinary beauty. This is not only rewarding to us but also serves the best interest of our clients both immediate day-to-day life and long term economic interests. To that end we assemble a team that has the same aspirations, from our employees to contractors and artisans. The ‘style’ of our work varies form project to project depending on client, budget and site (context and local). Using these conditions as a point of departure produces a uniqueness that characterizes each project. We also enjoy the belief that utility and beauty often have the same ends, and that these ends are unrelated to economics and style. We also believe that beauty grows exponentially in the details and fabric of the building. We are described as obsessive and we enjoy that description, knowing that the details amplify the operative ideas of our work, contribute a continual sense of wonder and enjoyment to those that use our buildings and add an unmatched value to our clients.
