Mesa / Table

by  Gerardo

Los creadores de la silla y la mesa tradicional debieron tener un gran sentido del humor. Si alguien tratara de sentarse en esta silla iría directo al piso y si alguien intentara poner si quiera un vaso encima de esta mesa, tanto mesa como vaso irían hacia abajo. Bueno, ya me burlé de los muebles tradicionales, ahora me toca confesarles que tampoco yo hice un buen trabajo.

Creé esta mesa con el propósito de conseguir una que no se cayera al agregarle peso, a diferencia de la tradicional. Entonces se me ocurrió combinar el diseño tradicional con el diseño de la caja corriente. Al fin y al cabo, la caja corriente me había permitido crear una mesa de centro bastante resistente. Lastimosamente, en este caso no fue suficiente para lograr la firmeza que quería. Ahora tengo esta mesa tan bonita dotada con unas patas muy inestables. Definitivamente no es uno de mis mayores orgullos, pero quizá algún día...

Éste ha sido mi primer modelo usando papel sándwich y alambre en el interior.


The creators of the traditional chair and table must have had a great sense of humor. If someone tried to sit in this chair, that person would go directly to the floor, and if someone tried to even put a glass on top of this table, then table and glass would go down as well. Ok, I had my laugh with the traditional furniture, now I should confess to you that I didn't do a good job either.

I created this table with the purpose of obtaining one that didn't fall down as you added weight, unlike the traditional one. So it occurred to me I could combine the traditional design with the common box's design. After all, the common box had allowed me to create a very resistant coffee table. Unfortunately, in this case it wasn't enough to gain the firmness I wanted. Now I got this beautiful table "gifted" with very unstable legs. It definitely isn't one of my greatest achievements, but maybe one day...

This has been my first model using tissue foil and wire in its interior.

    Quería hacer un comedor con mesa y sillas, pero si la sola mesa me quedó difícil pues las sillas me quedaron imposibles =S

    Quizá algún día : )
