Outdoor Tables Influenced by the Underground
May 13, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
The wind was so fierce that I nearly blew down the street Saturday en route to the BKLYN Designs show, then was blown away by the Katch Design Company’s Lucky Beam tables.
Inspired by the I-beams found in NYC subways, these bold powder-coated aluminum-base tables are topped with a heavy slab of reclaimed heart pine from renovated industrial buildings in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The fair showcased several lines of furniture utilizing locally reclaimed materials from Brooklyn, including Uhuru Designs’ lounger made of reclaimed Ipe wood from the Coney Island boardwalk.
