The Friction Table

Heatherwick Studio commissioned TAIT to custom-build a Friction Table for its series of experimental design works to be presented at Daniel Katz Gallery in London, England. The Friction Table was built with a mechanical device to change its proportions, adapt to different spaces and convert into a round or oblong extended table. In its round form, the table is 72 inches. In its longest extended position, it reaches over 158 inches and seats groups of eight people.
