It has been standing in my home office –in many different, ever-changing forms– for quite a while. Its current shape has become the furniture piece I enjoy most. Specially when the afternoon sun shines through the window, reflects in the glass and the fractured blocks cast irregular shadows on each other.

It is such an interesting piece with all its depth, different from every angle and full of traces of a violent deconstruction; signs of a saw, dents and spontaneous cracks. Yet now it looks so quiet, subtle and calm. Broken beyond repair but so perfectly put together.

Speaking of crushing and breaking things down, there is such a mood of disruption in the air – in the most positive sense of it. Specially when it comes to disrupting and crushing old dysfunctional and outdated systems and patterns of thought to make way for the future now.

To get back to the table and how to; do-it-yourself-ing a similar one speaks for itself.
Also, check out its cousins we previously made: here and here.

Have a fantastic Sunday guys!
