’30 years coffee table’
Designer: Ernesto Garcia
How much time you take to make a coffee table?
If your answer is – a week or a month – it is wrong.
How old is your coffee table?
And if you say something like – I bought it a year ago. Then again you are wrong.
Wait and think.
Think about time taken in a human process and time taken by a natural process!
Look at the tree rings used in this coffee table, count them and then answer.
You are right this coffee table is 30 years old! The tree was 30 years old!
The designer Ernesto Garcia raises these questions and wants to establish your lost connection to the nature via this ’30 years coffee table’.
Ernesto Garcia is one of the graduating student this year at Konstfack University College of Arts Crafts and Design, Sweden
