Inspired by an orange
Segment 1, an unusual dining table, was my first exhibition piece. It was something I’d wanted to extend myself with: a fractal triangle but on a larger scale.
Segment 1 has an unconventional seating arrangement for a dining table. Seven can fit comfortably with no head of table. This enables close interaction with people sitting across from each other. Three of these tables together form a three metre circle. So there are lots of opportunities for a restaurant to create a flexible dining arrangement.
The wood colours were chosen to reflect the parts of an orange; fumed oak for the skin, pippy oak for the flesh and sycamore for the pith.
