Furniture Design Stasis Coffee Table by Mike Pond There is a need for balance in the world of design. Technology and its tools as they relate to the built object have influenced the world, but they can easily reduce all materials to a simple plastic. For example, with the right router bit and a CNC machine, any shape can be carved out of any material. A craftsman's talent is no less important but has the drawback of often being impractical and imperfect. The Stasis Table strives to find that balance between the pure expression of concrete's inherent nature, and the technological innovation required to build it.
