J5 Table - With the J5 table I set out to prove that concrete does not need to be flat or planar, it can have forms that you'd normally see in plastics.

J5 Table - This is a look at a different variation of legs I'm currently working with.
J5 Table - The goal of this table was to prove that concrete doesn't need to be flat and rectangular. Concrete can achieve shapes that are more commonly seen in resins and plastics: two materials that are not environmentally friendly. Concrete is a recyclable material that is underutilized in furniture. The table is flat packable and due to the voids, it still has a minimal amount of mass which makes shipping easy (the concrete portion weighs approx 20lbs).

The table was a response to my frustration with many furniture designers use of concrete. Concrete is constantly used as a flat boring mass when it can be anything. These photos are from the process of making the table based on vornoi structures developed in Rhino.

I'm still waiting for the glass.

This was attempt one. I realized that I'd made the same mistake as other designers: making concrete flat. That, and I wanted to push my design a bit farther.

J5 Table

Made of concrete and hemlock, the table proves that concrete doesn't need to be flat and boring. Rather, you can flat pack this table and ship it at a reasonable rate. No tools are required to assemble the table. The legs are press fit onto the concrete top. The table can also be easily disassembled at the end of it's life for recycling.
