The intended effect of the open cross-hatched Koa "shelf" is to suggest a space for a special object while being interesting enough in its own construction to not require anything at all. This continues an application of Tai Lake's "vestigial shelf" series. In this way, a room can feel "finished" without the addition of more "stuff" or if something is required, it can be presented in this special place, adding to the sense of ownership without detracting form the overall presence. It is a quiet space, that invites a bit of thought.

This new table is a fusion of concepts presented in other recent work. The motivation for this piece came via a request for a table that could enhance a smaller space while keeping high visual interest without mass or clutter.
The legs are a refined version of the "Kyoto Temple Table" legs, more delicate in scale, inspired by the stone walls at the Japanese Imperial Palace; the graceful outsweeping curve both visually rewarding and practical in thwarting ninja attack. The highly structured joinery holding these forms together brings one's attention to detail without overpowering it's surroundings, important in a close setting.
