japanese designer jo nagasaka from schemata architecture office has created a contemporary interpretation of the traditional japanese hassoku dai, a low table with 8 legs, by using a plank as a table top that is then finished with a layer of colored epoxy resin in fluorescent pink or yellow. this new design follows in the steps of its predecessor ‘flat table‘ developed in 2009, where jo nagasaka has added epoxy resin to the surface of antique tables, in order to smooth and regulate the uneven and different depths of the table tops. this new version called the ‘flat table peeled’ uses the brightly colored resin to square off the uneven edges and surface of the wooden panels cut from the lengths of trees. the table was on show at spazio rossana orlandi during the milan design week 2011.

  • nice style but epoxy is not recyclable…

  • very nice look, however these things will blow apart with the seasonal change in the wood . plastic does not move like the wood
