Voidan Table Adapts Pre-Industrial Materials for an Avant-Garde Look

In observing these sharp renderings of the Void(an) Table with its impossibly pointed feet, you would almost certainly guess its composition incorrectly. You'd be right to assume that the transparent surface on top is a pane of clear glass, but the mind-bending body of the object might seem to be made of metal.

Incredibly, Onur Ozkaya suggests that there is a way to make birch plywood behave in such a manner as to take double curved surfaces and mesmerizing deformations. This would be the formwork of the coffee table, for the surface you're perceiving is actually leather. The animal hide is stretched over the misshapen structural material to reinforce the smooth appearance of the piece. Perforations in the upholstery emphasize the depth of the Void(an) Table's astonishing contortions. Stats for Futuristic Warped Furnishings Trending: Older & Average
