The Picnic Table's Crooked Frame Contrasts with its Stiff Tabletop

For the security of full cups and bowls, a very flat and horizontal surface is the most effective sort of table top. The Picnic Table by Federico Churba incorporates this common feature; however, the design was rendered more intriguing with a formal juxtaposition below.

The wooden top is supported by two metal components that form two sets of joined legs. These connect to the timber surface at four points each, after branching out into pairs halfway up the posts. This feature alone adds some detail to the contemporary dining table, but the designer wished to push the conventional boundaries a touch further. The substructure of the Picnic Table by Federico Churba was sculpted so that it appears to be bending and buckling at some angles, contrasting with its stiff top.
