Seldom do we admire a table for not its surface, but its edges. The Breaking Surface table by Sophie Hardy pays tribute to the small Swedish village of Dals Långed, a village that once had a thriving paper industry. The table comprises multiple stacked sheets of colored paper trapped between pieces of birch veneer and ply. The colors of the paper sheets come out with the way the edges are machine milled to produce a design detail that’s nothing short of eye-catching and marvelous, whether admired from above or the side. What’s truly interesting is the possibility of experimenting with various color combinations and cut patterns to create a complete, exhaustive series that explore different designs, colors, trends, cultures, etc.! The possibilities are endless!
