Jacob Marks that focuses on sustainable methods of manufacturing. Their goal is to design and produce quality, handcrafted pieces that can be handed down from generation to generation and it&#8217;s clear when you take a look at what goes into making the <a href="https://www.skramfurniture.com/furniture/product/altai-side-table" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Altai Side Table</a>. For this month&#8217;s <a href="http://design-milk.com/column/deconstruction/" data-wpel-link="internal">Deconstruction</a>, Skram takes us behind the scenes to see how this beautiful table comes to light. Take a look.
Altai is a family of seating and tables that we launched in 2015. The defining characteristic of this body of work is what we call the leg element (others have said that they look like leg warmers or rifle barrels or any number of other things), which we manifest with a complex computer-driven carving process and a great deal of hand work. Altai was our first collection that embraced applied

Playing with Weight: The W8 Side Table by Alain Gilles for Ligne Roset

As you take a longer look at W8, you’ll notice elements of visual weight, effective weight, graphic fragility and graphic mass all at play. The stability of the side table comes from the carved Pietra Serena stone that acts as a ballast to ground the rounded curves at the base. The four slender lacquered metal rods that sweep up to the table top helps to visually balance out the weightiness of the table.

                                The Scout is a solid walnut end table by San Diego, California-based <a href="http://www.alchemymercantile.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Alchemy Mercantile</a>, who drew inspiration from Danish design. With a mid-century modern vibe, the table is handmade and built to last without the need for screws or nails – strictly wood to wood joinery. This allows the wood to swell and shrink as the seasons and temperatures fluctuate throughout the year.
The table rests on three tapered legs with a lower wooden shelf and a top shelf made of “Low Iron” Starphire glass (reduced green hue and color reflection). At the back, a box-like planter joins the two levels making way for your favorite plant. Each table is finished with a combination of natural oils and wax, before being hand-buffed to get its matte sheen. The natural finishes will not harm your plant or pollute the soil in your planter box. A percentage of the sale of

TINGE tables require no tools or hardware when assembled, instead the pieces have slots notched out where they easily fit together, letting you mix and match the pieces until you get the look you want.
The scrap plastic can be cut into all different shapes, offering up all kinds of table variations. And when the pieces are layered, it creates a cool visual effect with light, reflections, and shadows. The first prototypes were done in the colors shown but more options could be available. The TINGE tables were produced by Zweko Optics, with the materials coming from Arla Plast.

Instead of your typical materials, like wood or metal, they&#8217;ve chosen to work with cardboard and ready-made PVC rivets.
They’re working with a local cardboard manufacturing company to make Lumber happen, which only uses regular process cardboard. There are six tables in the collection and to form them, the cardboard is cut using a die-cutting press. After cutting, each piece of cardboard is folded into the shape of a standard piece of actual lumber, which is how the collection got its name, and held together

This time, showcasing new, unique work at the 2017 Architectural Design Show.
First is the new Volume Mirror Collection. This set of mirrors are unlike any we’ve seen. With strong, 3D geometric shapes, these sculptural objects diverge from typical function of a mirror. Rather than a tool to view one’s own reflection, these mirrors act as the focal point of the room. They’re made with colored glass and a hardwood frame, and come in convex and concave versions. Robert also added to his Gibbous Table line with a new coffee and side table. Both come in striking color combinations, making it look as if they’re graphic pieces of art rather than furniture. The new Gibbous Coffee Table can nest together and rotates. The Gibbous Side Table comes in a new, edgy black

Available in Dark Gray or Light Gray, the Half Table is made using only coated metal that was bent into two sections that fit together to become a stable form.

pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-1a Inspired by Fredercia’s history of high quality furniture making, Morrison wanted to broaden the brand’s roster while paying homage to Danish designer Børge Mogensen and his iconic wooden furniture. Pon is made from oak and ash, each available in various finishes, and comes in four sizes, ranging from a small end table to hold a drink or a book, all the way to a coffee table. pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-2 pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-3-1280_oak pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-4-1280_blacklacquered pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-5-1285_whiteash pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-6-1285_oak pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-7-1285_smokedoak pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-8-1295_smokedoak pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-9-1295_blacklacquered pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-10 pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-11 pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-12 pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-13 pon-tables-jasper-morrison-fredericia-14
