Third Experiment

 

For this experiment, I was focusing on height. The picture doesn’t show it but it was up to my chest, so it was over 5ft. Also I was trying to make it not sturdy to see how it would look like out of foam boards.

Second Experiment

 

 

For my second experiment I wanted to experiment in-balance. Since table’s doesn’t have to be sturdy so I used plastic on the bottom to support the plexi glass surface.

First Experiment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My first experiment I was focusing on how to sit around the table and the height of the table. I used a piece of mdf and a bucket while putting on top objects.

It Only Looks Precarious by Ryan Jongwoo Choi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After I did my first experiment, I found this image which was very similar to my experiment. I used plexy glass for the surface and I used plastic wraps for the middle to balance the surface.

Table Settings

 

 

 

As I’ve talked about in my earlier post, table’s and etc were used back in the Renaissance era like it is shown on the top image. Table’s weren’t also placed because of the design of the space and etc, they were also set for management of food, presentation and comfort.

It is also said that the table setting is in relationship to the architecture of houses and the land the houses were in was a major factor.

This tells me that the coffee table just doesn’t need to match with the design on designs inside the house, but it affects the style of the country and architecture.
