Axe 2006

Four handles of an axe are used as table legs. Their initial violent purpose is set as contrast to the formal reference to classical furniture. The design allows a mutual use of the table board and the crossbars: untreated for the rough look, lined with linoleum for a more comfortable desktop.

Tabletop: plywood covered with linoleum
Legs: handles of an axe
Status: prototype
