Crafted from maple and nickel-plated steel, Ceci n’est pas une table is based upon the imagined response of an item of furniture to an external force. In this case the piece is exposed to compression. The deformed result robs the object of its former functionality, thus turning it into a sculpture which exudes strength and defies the conventional behaviour of the materials.
