The project is concerned with the ways in which furniture engages, rather than occupies architecture, examining the ability of objects to respond to spatial constraints and shifting atmospheric conditions. Designed objects must engage the three-dimensional physicality of a room, opposed to merely being placed in plan. 
The table is site specific. Legs of this table do not hold it up, but pull it up. The extra-longs legs are collaged from typical Windsor leg profiles, and their exaggerated length creates a counter-balance, to support the tabletop. The table uses the concrete parapet and railing as a fulcrum. In this way, the table is used in one space, but also occupies another, noted by the painted and unpainted portions of the object.
