Ant End Table
Design Inspiration “Weight on my back”
The center table is one of those furniture pieces that we place a lot of items on for many reasons. Books, bowls, drinks, food and even feet, causes this table to be heavily utilized. The center table is that important finishing piece that is truly the center of attraction and function for any composition. Given all its significance and responsibility, the design of the center table was inspired by an ant. I observed the creature’s commitment to duty by putting all sorts of items on its back for the colony, similar to the functions of the center table. My observation of the ants’ exoskeleton body with all its strength inspired me to develop the form for the Ant Center Table.
