imogen luddy: cross stitch table

imogen luddy is a london based textile designer who recently graduated from the royal college of art. luddy’s work takes inspiration from antique lace, doilies and other embroidery, or in the case of the cross stitch table, a piece of 16th century italian lace. the piece is a table top made from laser cut stainless steel with small perforations all over to create the pattern. the design aims to subvert the traditional notions of a table covering by taking an old concept and re-imagining it with modern materials and manufacturing processes.
