The islamic tradition of Kufic motifs inspired this modular table design. Kufic squares abstract Arabic calligraphy into a geometrical structure where the negative and positive spaces work together in equal harmony to complete the composition. This table invites the user to physically interact with the script, playing with the repeated symbols and reinterpreting its meaning. I cut, joined, sanded and finished the numerous wooden segments.
