While working on a range of "smaller size and price" products called Inventory, Daphna Laurens' created something a bit bigger, a wood table with a grid surface.
To be exact, it was while working on the design of the Grid Plank for the Inventory collection (see below) as well as Gitter, a wooden dwelling for concept store You Are Here, "the idea to create the Grid Table arose." says Laurens.
The shapes of all four 'cut and serve' Grid Planks originate from Daphna Laurens' grid studies, one of many methods for the design studio to devise form and shape."Varying in size and grid, all planks are designed to be clear-cut functional and aesthetically alluring, without adding unneeded materials or 'handy' accessories."
"'Cut on the smooth, serve on the grid side'. Use the plank like this and it will persist in being neat and tidy for a very long time."
