Aissa Logerot - Extension table

I love Aissa Logerot's Extension table - as far as I can tell, it doesn't use any glue or screws, just rope. I appreciate how the rope becomes a design feature, both through its color and in the way that it is used structurally.
This project questions contemporary furniture design, from the concept of multipurpose use and uncertain quality (due to rationalized industrial production), to the ambition or desire for durability. Products are envisaged in a non-fixed state, to be extended or lengthened, according to uses which vary and evolve over time. Starting with assembly and a concern for eco-design, I rethought the idea of furniture in kit form, taking into account packaging, transportation, storage, mounting and dismantling by the user.
