A Personal Angle on the Trestle Table
Scale models and prototypes offer views not possible on paper
Eben Blaney set out to give the traditional trestle table a new twist. First he tilted the trestles outward to create angles and openings. Then he lowered the stretcher to the floor, opening an expanse under the table that pleased his eye. With these two major design decisions done, the rest of the design decisions started to fall into place. See how this table evolved from prototype to finished product.
