The Facet is a table that was designed to be a sculptural centerpiece as well as a functioning piece of furniture, using innovative techniques in design, construction, and materials. The table is constructed of milled bamboo plywood, corian, steel and no hardware. The pattern of the wood is from milled sheets of bamboo plywood. This material creates a warm and comfortable feel while being unfamiliar to the user due to the rare use in this form. In the corner of the bamboo are milled facets to create a area where the user may place his keys, change, or anything that may slide or roll off the table. The white triangle is made of Corian and gives the user an area to place materials like glasses, plates, etc. without damaging the wood or using coasters. The corian is also translucent and the carvings in the bamboo create a themed pattern through-out the piece. The legs are made of 1/4 inch steel rods welded and powdercoated. There is a milled groove for the legs to fit snugly into the bottom of the bamboo.
