    MOD

This table set melds precision mathematics and procedural computation with the appearance of organic form. When put together, the 6 unique components form a simple rectangular low coffee table. When separated, the odd shapes of the components are evident and they can be used as end tables, benches, or sculptural objects. We developed the forms as a 3-dimensional Voronoi tessellation, an algorithm that permits nuanced formal variations. The basic components are made with precision CNC-cut sheets of Baltic Birch, laminated horizontally with exposed plywood edges, but the edges are shaped by hand to create subtle variations and unique features to each set. MOD will produce the Stones Table with wood and laminate tops of various types.

AIA Nebraska 2013 design award jury comment:

“The individual parts each have their own identity and yet can be composed to recall their origins – a prototypical table.”

MOD Furniture

Inspired by everyday geometries, MOD is furniture – infrastructure for living & working – that recognizes our inherent desire to re-arrange space. Each product is composed of several pieces that can be combined, grouped, dispersed, stacked and arranged in multiple ways. Some can be expanded endlessly, others are finite. Founded by the Actual Architecture Co. and Min Design, MOD creates objects that inspire improvisation.
