james tooze of UK based furniture designers, batch has sent in images of his latest work ‘a new perspective’. the table is the start of a project illustrating the reality of objects in terms of their materials, manufacture and possible use. the piece aims to encourage investigation into how things are made. when standing in a particular spot, the graphic on the table becomes the very structure of its own construction. much like an x-ray of the table.
