At the request of the Goethe-Institut, we designed
and built a table for displaying postcards and other graphic material
associated with Berlin’s club scene.
This project was an exercise of minimum cost /
maximum impact design logic. We proposed a table made only of two 4’X8’ MDF
boards, cutting one board to be as long as possible, allowing it to become a
feature in a very large exhibition space and articulating this its scale with
that of the small postcards. The board’s short ends where cut diagonally so as
to create a zig-zag pattern in the overall form, which guaranteed the lateral
stability of an otherwise too slender table. The second board was used to build
twenty thin legs on which the table stands. The entire table was cut on a CNC
machine and assembled on the same day.
