Entrapment Table by Misha Kahn
by Harry / May 27, 2011

One of the highlights of ICFF 2011 was a table by Misha Kahn with strands of glass fiber plastic woven into the table top and the same strands below, baked, supporting it.

The pattern on the surface of the table is based on an American Chippendale tray stencil, says Kahn, "that would have been an 18th century DIY project. I thought it was appropriate to appropriate the pattern and give it an update, making it the the structural component of the table, rather than a decorative motif."

The embroidery in the tabletop serves as the footing for the twin-twex fiber, which is woven through some 2,000 holes to make up the patterning. The table top is made of Ash, and is ebonized and burnt, with a bleached laser cut inset.
