The Poised Table by Paul Cocksedge is made from a thousand pounds of rolled steel. The bent metal furniture piece plays with perception and challenges traditional construction practices.

Pushing the boundaries of modern design, the London-based architect was able to conceive this striking table with the help of complex mathematical calculations that allowed him to bring his unique vision to life.

This balanced furniture piece resembles a bent piece of paper and defies its stiff material’s limitations. Designed in a limited edition of 10 pieces, the piece will be on display at Cocksedge’s first solo show at New York’s Friedman Benda gallery. The architect’s Poised Table design is visually powerful and architecturally sound making it a piece that is both practical and aesthetically intriguing.
