Greenfall is a wood table inspired by a leafless tree in late fall. The design won the first prize in Groovystuff Design Challenge of High Point Market Spring 2011. The table is shown in raw and rustic wood material, which reminds us the perfect gift from the nature -- tree. The designer draws a silhouette of a tree on a rectangle. The trunk part works works as supporting structure of the table, and the leaves parts as table surface fall onto different heights. The word “fall” is a pun which has the first layer of meaning implied in the table that it is the season that leaves depart from the tree revealing the shape of a trunk. The scond layer of meaning shown as the green parts of a tree falling onto lower levels.
