The “Liquid Table” was inspired by a client’s request to create a “stunning” dining room table that defies gravity. She showed us a few of her ideas that centered around the concept of fluidity and a very thin profile to help inform our direction. The challenge was creating something that looked lightweight but was heavy and durable enough to withstand normal use.
Our solution was to create a waterfall effect using 1/8” steel for the top with legs folding over at the corners. We then coated the entire form in jet-black, food-safe epoxy to imply a liquid overflowing from an invisible pool.
