Tables And Seating, Concentric and Decentric

This is a Tables and Seating. It was designed by Mary Ping and Bureau V and made by TAG, The Abadi Group. It is dated 2018. Its medium is recycled beverage carton composite panels (rewall), resin-infused paper composite panel. It is a part of the department.

A circular process, evident in both the design’s form and material reuse, is the focus for the table and seating. The terrazzo-like compressed surface is thoughtfully made of discarded food packaging, giving new life to waste. The shapes tessellate for efficiency, and the configuration spins from a central axis to accommodate either small or large gatherings.

It is credited Courtesy of Mary Ping.
