With this table I wanted to explore the relationship between the horizontal surface of the tabletop and the vertical supports of the legs that is the basis of a table and more importantly how they interact with each other.

I used a simple construction inspired by log cabins that would "hold" the table top by embracing it within the leg structure.

The opposing horizontal supports of the top and the horizontal cross members of the bottom add stability to the construction.

The mirrored shelf reflects the bright yellow of the underside of the table, creating a element of surprise as well as the illusion of continuing legs.
