A modern coffee table with Nordic aesthetic influences, Strut features a new take on industrial, metal stretchers. 



       Parallel, bending lines and hidden fasteners that make up the stainless steel accent provide an airy, yet secure appearance.


       A light, matte finish over western maple emphasizes the wood's natural beauty while giving the table a warm presence, contrasting the cold steel stretcher. Soft angles are mirrored from the legs to the top, while rounded corners and edges soften these clean lines.

      Strut's design process was a practice in structural problem solving through making. Much of the table's construction and aesthetic choices were resolved through trail-and-error with physical tests and samples.
