Ancient Puzzle Meets Modern Table

Inspired by Japanese puzzle games, this simple table solution, appropriately named JOIN, can be assembled in a matter of minutes (without any tools!) by linking its 3 oak legs into a combination devil’s knot. The untreated base supports a circular smoked glass top measuring 750mm in diameter and can be quickly disassembled for storage or shipment. A DIY flat-pack design that’s as easy as it is fun to put together.

JOIN table travels as a part of the “Design Deutschland 2011″ exhibition – curated by the German Design Council – from the FuoriSalone in Milan to the ICFF in New York and finally  to the Business of Design Week in Hong Kong.

Tour dates:
– Milan, FuoriSalone, Spazio Carrozzeria, Via Tortona. 12-17 April 2011
– New York, ICFF International Contemporary Furniture Fair, 14-17 May 2011
– Hong Kong, Business of Design Week, 1-3 December 2011

Designer: Ding 3000

    How are you going to get the glass to stay on?

    The magic of gravity should hold it, be it ON the table or ON the floor. Just wait until someone pushes the top by accident 😛

    It looks nice, but what’s the practicality or benefit? Lots of tables come apart easily, it’s not as if the components themselves are especially storage friendly, or interlock for storage. If it’s not meant to be taken apart again the top would need to be attached….and a ‘matter of minutes’…under a minute a would have thought, otherwise again…

  • Virtual Hotspot is free software to turn your laptop or pc into Wi-Fi hotspot.
    This said it is my opinion that they lack functionality and ease of use.

    A home wireless network doesn’t need to be complicated to set up.
