    Choose from the limited edition Fold and Spin coffee table selected from the project section of the website. The Fold table has 4 identical round oak legs, a glass top, and metal hardware. The support legs spin and unfold through a central unifying detail. This allows efficient use of labor and material. By placing the circular glass surface on top of the unfolded legs, the user gives structural form integrity to the table, with no extra tools required.

    The AV angle study links an abstract rhythm and order within an expressive material format. The single oak length is cut 9 times at varying 5 degree angles. This exposes the woods end grain and forms a varying light capturing plane within each series.

    AV l+C is material study composed of 8 varying lengths of a heat formed Polystyrene sheet material. In dividing the overall composition into varying segments, a light source is captured onto the individual surfaces and displays the character of each part of the whole through varying surface illuminations levels.
