Versatile Cubic Table
Initially inspired by the idea of having a fun table with which the user could interact, the design evolved from the "decorative"aspect into a more functional one. From the interactive removable wood blocks, passing thru several stages and modifications, the cocept was simplified to imitate one of the basic, yet very functional forms in design, the cube.


1st Stage.
Initial Concepts


PROJECT OUTLINE:
The Aim of the project was to Design a table for the Design School  Office.  The design that better met the prerequisites outlined, was likely  to be built, remaining at QCA as a one off piece of furniture.

the sphere concept.
inspired in one of the main elements in universe, a sphere sybolizes equilibrium and harmony...
the sphere is a integral design of a big board room round table, with the northern hemisfere being a large light screen. the seats are also integrated into the table, making the hole set look like a complete sphere when put together.
the pixes table concept
inspired on the graphical part of design and blending into tridimensional form, intends to be an interactive piece of furniture, with a challenging impact to the viewer.
the Mannequin concept.
Celebrates the fun side of desing,turningthe"legs" of the usual table into "human" ones by re-using 2nd handed mannequins and modifying them... designed together with the mannequin seats, this concept is inspired on the pop culture of a loud and striking design, playing with the humor and fun of it.
Final Concept

Initially inspired by the idea of having a fun table with which the user could interact, the design evolved from the "decorative"aspect into a more functional one. From the interactive removable wood blocks, passing thru several stages and modifications, the cocept was simplified to imitate one of the basic, yet very functional forms in design, the cube.

Sustainability & Materials
The design intends to crete a connection with the user for him to care about it, therefore, it aims to be a longlife product which the customer would like to keep for years and years.

in this way, it helps the environment not by using recycling materials but with providing a long life product with ex- celent queality finishing and materials.
