The De-Cubed Table Plays with the Illusion of Plane

Part of the appeal of the De-Cubed Table is its engaging reference to the de Stijl movement of the 1920s. It would look quite at home in the Schroder House, placed next to Rietveld's chair.

Its defining feature is its flat geometries with strong linear emphases due to the emptiness in their centers. Four frames compose the side table with three of them oriented vertically and one set down horizontally across their tops for support. The 29-inch-long planes are completely penetrable, except for the top one that surrounds a clear acrylic surface. The overlapping appearance of the poplar boxes provides a unique view from every angle.

Red, yellow, blue and black paint decorate the De-Cubed Table by Now Workshop. It is a modern essay on the building blocks of design.
