New York-based architect Robert Bernstein’s clientele is full of party-goers who are born chatters and thus cannot afford to stay tight-lipped. This drives their interest in having a pool of people who can carry on discussions rather than counted dumb figures sitting on an installed rectangular table.
Now question arrives, how to accommodate endless participators’ or visitors in a single-go of discussion. Either divide it into two-groups (is not acceptable) or get home the lately designed table that fosters conversation.
The inlets and peninsulas of this undulating table would allow people to sit in and around the curves, enabling them to feel body-language of the person on the other side of the table. The highlighting factor of the table is that it doesn’t offer any dominant place at the table and the credit for it goes to its democratic nature.
The shape of the table was hand-drawn and won the appreciation and bagged the award among the top 100 sketches. The fabric used to design this table includes 3/16″-thick painted steel (pieced, welded and painted in Soho loft). With a capacity to accommodate 20 people, this can be perched from the ceiling and attached to the planked floors through with stainless steel cables. According to Bernstein, the cables were placed in replacement of arms. But before your heart falls for this chair, let me reveal the most important point about this masterpiece i.e. price. Only $10,000.
