David Rasmussen Furniture Design – from ashes to production

Like the polished core revealed when a geode is cracked open, Lego is a geometrically-shaped table that has been split open, in concept, to reveal it’s multicolored core. The top is an acrylic painting that has been sanded and sealed for durability. Lego’s legs are up cycled from old school chairs.
The Artichoke Table
The Artichoke Table was designed to represent an organic form that has been split to reveal its core, in this case the cross section of an artichoke. The body of the table is made from shop-molded plywood, faced with exceptionalZebrano veneer, and shaped to form the elliptical shell. Cocobolo legs are mortised into the shell to make this table heirloom quality. The acrylic painting on the top of the table has been sanded flat and treated to act as a durable tabletop.
