‘Fall Off’ by Sam Stringleman

'Fall Off' by Sam StringlemanWellington-based designer Sam Stringleman presents ‘Fall Off’, a computer generated table. The table’s dimensions measure 1200mm x 800m x 700m, all birch plywood/pine. Surface density is calculated by the placement of  objects on a virtual table, through a web interface.

As a virtual object, for example a laptop or coffee cup, is moved around on the table, the epicenter of the structure follows. This forms supporting density on the top surface and structural form on the underside which accommodates splayed legs.

The surrounding density is controllable through a digital falloff, representing a gradual decrease.With the addition of more objects the density increases to a state of equilibrium with just enough structure to perform the required task but move it and it will fall off.
