The most common pattern to be found on an eating surface is probably straight wood grain, often visible in separate strips from individual pieces of timber. The Constructed Surface Table displays a different motif than anything you will have seen before, resembling an unusual hybrid of wood and wicker.

This dining table by Atelier Rick Tegelaar appears to be pristinely put together, so you might be surprised to learn that its composition owes credit to the material offcuts of furniture factories. The beautiful fishbone pattern that mesmerizes your eyes is constructed from little pieces of plywood that have been arranged diagonally like tiles. This allows the Constructed Surface Table to be assembled to any dimensions, fit to serve as a kitchen table or a desk, and ever delighting its user.
