Appearing from above as a rectangular volume, the carved sides hint at an inverted landscape concealed below. A single material is excavated to create a textured, topographic form suspended from the underside of a massive slab. Resting on tapered trestle legs, the slab is sized to the dimensions of a regulation table tennis surface and accepts a table tennis net. In addition to functioning as a surface for play (table tennis table), the piece can also be used as a surface for work (conference table) or living (dining table).
