Together with Ingot Foundry and Marine we designed and fabricated a boardroom table.
The project started knowing we are going to use 2x marine propellers to support a long rectangular glass table top.
The first step of my process was to offer a suitable and complimentary glass table top shape.
The superellipse was chosen by the customer and from there we refined the design.
The base was designed and fabricated by Ingot. The steel base sheet was scaled down to match the shape of the glass table top.
Alternative base and support designs
Fabricating the base
The base is made of laser cut steel in the same shape to match the table top. After fabrication the steel was polished.
Cutting the glass
- Custom shape: 3500mm x 1502mm CNC shape with 3 holes
- 12mm low iron toughened
- Edgework: Polished edges
Before ordering the glass, we made sure the glass shape will fit in the elevator! We made a 1:1 version out of coreflute and took it up the highrise building.
