Inspired by impromptu gatherings where any available tables are pushed together, the ‘Sharing table’ is made of early Victorian mahogany to 1970s formica tables found during the last 10 days in second hand markets across london.
Every table had to be height adjusted to create a level playing field, some adjustments were easier than others, old james bond paperback books and tennis balls are just right….
Materials used for the Sharing Table by Rupert Blanchard:- 60s formica & beech kitchen table - Victorian Mahogany table with books - 70s motorway cafe formica and steel table - 50s g-plan gate-leg dining table - post war ply/pine and oak gate-leg table - 30s reproduction antique plant table - Georgian ebonised gate-leg table with tennis balls - 30s/40s extending oak dining table. recycled plywood infills where needed The inclusive tone & the openness of the creative process are things that I think Rupert are doing so right!
