Andrew Barrie – CloudTable

The basis for this structure is a unitized system of modular 200m-long elements, each made from 9mm plywood sheathed on the front and rear vertical surfaces with Laminex. The table structure is made up of a perimeter frame and a ‘cloud’ of interlocked modules CAD/CAM milled from a simple sheet of ply laminated with Laminex. Linked by simple milled mortice-and-tenon joints, the modules form a mutually supportive system known as a ‘reciprocal network’.

The Laminex surfaces can be colored to create dramatic effects which accentuate the ephemeral ‘cloud’ nature of the form.
