Designed to occupy a sunny space, the table was a site-specific commissioned for a south facing light filled atrium.
The central component of a three piece arrangement, MCT_1 was in part a reaction to a childhood experience.The original 1950’s production of Noguchi’s iconic glass topped Coffee Table featured glass tops made with a higher iron content, causing a sharp green banding along the edges. If you put your eye up to the green band the index of light refraction within the glass gives you the sensation of looking into an infinitely repeating space. From this the question arose: “what happens if you peeled the top layer and the bottom layer away from each other and extruded this interior space until it manifested into form?” The result is a laminated mirrored acrylic bounding space containing and CNC-Milled acrylic blocks, Polished on the tops and bottoms and frosted on the sides. Direct daylight passes through the polished faces and casts a sundial-like form on the floor, tracking time throughout the day. Light entering at an angle is refracted endlessly within the table causing it to hold a steady glow. The entire piece is structurally engineered to be self-supporting in a manner borrowed from tension/cable bridge construction.
