Robert Scott has designed a visually striking table that looks more like a work of art than a piece of furniture. It takes on a sculptural cantilevered aesthetic that looks as though it were inspired by the home of a Hobbit or some other earthy creature. Robert Scott focused on sweeping lines and curves throughout the design.

Dubbed Waiho, Robert Scott writes that the table "explores the relationship between user and object by inviting interaction through touch." It was made using a combination of hand carved stack lamination and laminate bending. Robert Scott goes on to say, "The forms themselves are inspired by the elegant and fluid contours created by the erosive force of wind and water on rock."
