The Dundee PenTables
These unusual tables reinterpret the classic 1930 Parsons Table as a 5-sided table affording unexpected and fun combinations. We derived the precise shape from the Cairo pentagonal tiling geometry so the tables can be composed in a variety of arrangements supporting a multitude of social situations, from meals for two, to board meetings, to large dinners. Made of thermally-modified Ash with a multi-layered finish, top boards are attached with hidden fasteners and may be removed for deep cleaning or refinishing. The tables rest atop casters on one side and glides on the other providing a stable surface and ease of movement.
See the Dundee PenTables project in "Objects" for more images and information.
