FTC Table

Pasadena, CA
Completed 2001

Commissioned by a private client, this indoor dining table is comprised of aluminum and glass, with stainless steel fasteners. Its five water-jet cut legs are tied together by a pair of lateral supports. Although this skeleton is extremely rigid, it can be disassembled in minutes using common tools. Due to the precision of the water-jet cutting, these pieces are fully interchangeable. The glass top rests on rubber pads, stabilized by its own weight.
