Designed by Tim Durfee & Iris Anna Regn, photographed by Jeremy Eichenbaum, and made of Marine plywood, Douglas fir, glass and rubber, the object is sloped to accommodate kids, teens and adults.

The “Growth Table is one of a series of objects and spaces modified from a variety of familiar types to sponsor specific activities for adults as well as children. It creates an instant and inter-generational community.”
