In ATEK, four empty spaces emerge where normally the table legs are – between the four sections of the skirt frame. Two bent sheets of metal surround these spaces, absorbing the forces that act on the table, and leading them to the ground where they connect again. This, in addition to the connection of the table top to the skirt frame, creates a closed and stable construction. The angled metal sheets and free spaces create an intriguing visual construct – volume, surface, or empty space? – depending on the perspective this question is answered anew.
