Designed and built be Axel Yberg of Akke Functional Art, the table easily converts to a dining table by removing the ‘net’.

Constructed from seven species of exotic wood in chop-block style, live edge slabs (black walnut, cherry, and holly) the table also includes reclaimed plumbing pipes and fittings, glass, mirror, steel, aircraft cable, and Edison reproduction light bulbs.

Says Yberg, “The name is a play on Stephen J. Gould’s theory of evolution (Punctuated Equilibrium) where things stay relatively the same for long periods of time and then, abruptly, a major change occurs – as opposed to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution where things change gradually.”
