Walking table seeks furnishing solutions for globally transient individuals, produced with digital fabrication techniques.

Sculpted using a flip-mill process on a standard CNC, the table assembles using no permanent or mechanical joinery.  Three removable legs puncture and balance a horizontal surface.  Their extensions serving double-duty as catches on which to hang daily artifacts like coats and bags.
