Surface Table by Terence Woodgate & John Barnard
Two Royal Designers for Industry, one from the world of furniture design and one from the world of Formula One racing car design, have collaborated on this super slim composite table. John Barnard unveiled the first chassis made entirely from carbon-fibre composite material in 1981 for McLaren. The new frame was both lightweight and super-strong, offering drivers unparalleled protection as they sat cocooned in their cockpit. By using state-of-the-art autosport / aerospace technology, and exploiting the inherent rigidity of layered carbon fibre, Terence Woodgate and John Barnard have created an astonishing table that spans 3metres and has a thickness of just 2mm at the edge (five times thinner than its nearest equivalent). Surface Table is available in a walnut veneer or unidirectional natural carbon fibre finish. Surface Table, by Terence Woodgate & John Barnard, for Established & Sons.
